Winaero ColorSync

Winaero ColorSync is very tiny application (441 kb) which is native and portable.
It serves only one purpose: to read the background color of your Start screen in Windows 8.1 and set it as the window color for desktop apps.
I have no other words :) See yourself: www.youtube.com/watch?v=jq-aoR…

I made this for Windows 8.1, but people tested and confirmed that app is working with Windows 8 too. Winaero ColorSync supports Windows 8.x x86 and x64. No separate version for x64 is required, the application works well on both versions.

Is it possible to do the opposite? Set the Start screen background color to the borders color? (I use Automatic coloring, from the wallpaper)
