What is MyColors?

MyColors is a digital distribution platform for themes developed by Stardock. It allows users to skin the Windows graphical user interface. Sets of themes have been made in partnership with GM, Ford, HP, Dell, the NHL, NBA, and NCAA. MyColors was created so that users could purchase and apply themes without having to worry about the underlying software. The themes are encrypted to reduce piracy. Individual parts can be mixed to create a custom theme with the corresponding Object Desktop software. Some themes are bundled with themed desktop applications, like a customized calendar and clock, typically made as DesktopX gadgets. A Windows Media Player skin and a wallpaper may also be supplied.


It adds a background controller service that is set to automatically run. Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. The main program executable is thememgr.exe. The software installer includes 40 files and is usually about 32.16 MB (33,718,995 bytes).
