RGB lighting may soon be managed independently by Windows 11


A standardised resolution to the RGB “problem” was what everyone had been waiting for

Enter Windows 11, which offers a unified solution to control RGB lighting, replacing Razer Synapse and Corsair iCUE. Microsoft is currently developing a universal feature that would replace the third-party software that is frequently needed for the peripherals in order to perform this fundamental function.

These options may soon be accessible to PC gamers, according to some screenshots from the early Windows 11 releases that have been leaked. Windows menus will gain a new personalization option for lighting up external hardware, like a gaming keyboard, mouse, or headset.

The brightness, the kind of lighting effect, and—most importantly—the hue may all be changed. These choices would be accessible to all USB-connected hardware, including Stream Deck from Elgato, as demonstrated by nearly-released screenshots.

Although it hasn’t been confirmed yet, it should be possible for these choices to support RGB on the graphics card and motherboard as well. However, the OS development team might need to pay it more attention.

It should be noted that Microsoft has not yet confirmed that these capabilities are in fact active, so it is unknown when this capability will be included in the public build.
