LoneColor for Windows ­­/ Help

Quick Start

Run from desktop

We recommend that you run LoneColor from a desktop shortcut to easily see its instant results. The installer program automatically creates this shortcut on your desktop.

Run as it is

When you run LoneColor as it is, by double-clicking its desktop shortcut, you will instantly get a random color desktop wallpaper. Keep double-clicking until satisfied with the result.

Rename and run

If you rename the LoneColor shortcut to LoneColor Red and double-click it, you will instantly get a Red wallpaper. You can use over one hundred color names that LoneColor understands.

Use color codes

If you rename the LoneColor shortcut to LoneColor #FF8200 and double-click it, you will instantly get a wallpaper filled with color #FF8200. Any hexadecimal color code works.

Copy/paste

You can copy any color code from any site, community, online tool or software program, and double-click the unrenamed LoneColor shortcut to "paste" the color as your wallpaper.

Restore wallpaper

To restore your old (photo) wallpaper, rename the LoneColor shortcut to LoneColor C, and double-click it to open Windows Background Settings, so you can easily undo changes.

When renaming a LoneColor shortcut, the main LoneColor executable file (yes, that works too), or when using the copy/paste feature, you can use the following types of color values:

Type Shortcut name Wallpaper color
Color names LoneColor Red
Hex triplets LoneColor #FF8200
RGB triplets LoneColor 127, 0, 126
Integer values LoneColor 9110018
