Windows Colors: a Preview

So I read a blog post by The Scripting Guy that talked about Use PowerShell to Display Known Colors. I thought that’s nice.. But It would be even simpler if I could just see the colors for myself. So I made a small chart to put here. To simplify the next time I need to change background colors using registry hacks.
