Colors of objects on the taskbar. Changeable?

Hey guys, is there anyway to change which colors are used in the objects on the taskbar? Not important or anything, just curious. Heres a picture to show you what I'm talking about.

As far as I know, no. If you find an app that will do it, make sure you have a system image to fall back on.

Since I have not tried this, you can be the first. Make a system image in case it does work and the color is not too pleasant and you cannot get the old one back.


To change the taskbar color...."Right click on your desktop, go to personalize, then the "Windows Color" button, the color mixer button, and you can get any custom color you want.

this only works for the color of the taskbar, not the individual objects on the taskbar. Im talking about the red and the blue in the picture I originally posted.

It would be cool to find a feature/application to do that.

If you notice the color is the same as a dominant color of the icon itself
