Windows XP update the 'Color scheme' without rebooting RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I know XP is done. However, I have been tasked to come up with a way to change the color scheme without rebooting.

    Normally: From the desktop, right click, select properties, 'Appearance Tab', then the 'Color Scheme' drop down box. Next, select a color, click the 'Apply' button.

    When you click the 'Apply' button the changes are applies. This is the function I need to replicate from a batch file, or Powershell script ect.

    Is there a way I can do this?

    Thank you.
