      This is a niche item, but it is one of those thing when you need it, nothing else gets the job done.

      Mac OS has one, even Linux has one in their repositories.  But Windows doesn’t.

      Whenever I was working on a project with my program that is Windows only, I would have to go to my Mac or Linux machine to use their utility to get the RGB codes, write them down, then go back to my project.

      Not anymore.  I have used this for about a year now, and can say it works as advertised without any problems.

      What makes this utility stand out for me is the ability to save multiple sets of RGB codes to refer back to, something Mac doesn’t do, and Linux’s method is so convoluted it is easier to use paper and pen.

      The developers website isn’t HTTPS, so if you have HTTPS Everywhere installed you will catch some grief.

      For once, “well done Microsoft for not including it”. Anything not essential to a functioning OS should be available, not included.

      You probably did not intend to imply Microsoft should include color picker but Operating Systems loaded with programs/apps most users never open is an annoyance.

      This may be a crutch – Windows 7, Paint:
      Click on Edit Colors. Move cross-pointer cursor to desired color, and move up the luminance scale at the right. To save, click on ‘Add to Custom Colors’, and OK.
