Today, Microsoft released Windows 10 Build 15014 to Windows Insiders in the Fast Ring. The latest build of Windows 10 introduces a host of new features to Insiders, along with the usual improvements and bug fixes. The main highlight in the latest build of Windows 10 is the ability to set any color as the accent in Windows 10.

At the moment, you can only choose from a group of set colors as the accent color in Windows 10. But with Windows 10 build 15014, you can choose any color using the color picker in Windows 10’s Settings. The accent color will appear throughout the OS, including the Start Menu, Cortana, taskbar, Action Center and even some third-party apps.

If you are a Windows Insider running build 15014, you can checkout this new feature by heading over to Personalization > Colors in the Settings app. As Microsoft notes, you can preview how the color looks by playing around with the color player, but you can also enter HEX, RGB or HSV color codes if you want to use a specific color as the accent color in Windows 10.

Similar to most of the recent newly released features in Windows 10 for Insiders, the new color picker is only going to be available to all users when Microsoft releases the Creators Update. The Windows 10 Creators Update, for those unfamiliar, is expected to arrive this April.
