true blue windows 7 color code?

Recommended Posts

i've tried multiple combinations of rbg's to get a truly accurate blue color to replicate windows 7, but none of them ever look quite right.  they're either instead purple, or a way too bright shade of blue that should be darker, but always show up as a sort of bright neon blue.

 

does anyone know the real blue color code or rgb combo to achieve a truly accurate windows 7 blue for the taskbar & start menu... as well as aero glass?  would be much appreciated.

Take a screen capture and load it in IrfanView. Click and hold on the color of interest and read the RGB values in the title bar.
