We do change the color of our taskbar but we never think of replacing the taskbar background color with any custom image and in Windows 7 taskbar has an important role play, especially when it some to easy access to the applications. So, today I will be telling you about a tool which will help you to play with the effects on your Taskbar like changing the color putting some effects and put a custom image file over it, you can call this tool as Taskbar Color Effects and I hope you will like it, though the only extra feature it has is that of the custom image.
You can see the screenshot of the tool mentioned above. This tool can let you select the color of your taskbar from any of the solid color available in the application window. After selecting any of the color you can vary their features by ranging the intensity of transparency and the shadow part of the tool part. The shadow part of the taskbar will not add anything in the color of the toolbar rather it will put its shadow in the desktop background. Now filling a solid color is also available in the default personalization option of the Windows.
So, this tool also offers you with a feature to add image in the tool, not these images will not be as solid as they are posted in the background of your desktop; rather they will be hazy as a normal solid color in the taskbar. Then again you can add other features like transparency over it and make them to be appeared as per your desires. You can also change the placement of the image on your taskbar, let me tell you that design or the picture available on your taskbar will not visible enough, so it will be fruitful if you add any image which contains some variety of shades. After making all the changes press Save button and then exit the application.
Once you launch this tool you will not see any of the application window, after getting launched you will see its icon on the taskbar tray and in its context menu, you will find an option of settings which will lead you to the application window mentioned in the snapshot above. The size of this tool is around 214 KB and moreover it can be carried anywhere in your portable storage devices. We have changed this on Windows 7 32-bit Ultimate edition, so if you face any problem while using it then please let us know about it.
