I want to take on a project but don't know where to start


#1

So… I have a laptop thats backlit with all sorts of fun colors. I’ve searched everywhere and can’t find a program or setting where I could change each keys color individually. Even just doing different layouts than the currently offered software.

This made me curious if it’s possible to code something like that? Also made me curious where I would need to start with a project like that? Is there a better language for this type of program to make it with? I have some knowledge about different coding languages thanks to this site but I haven’t done much with what I’ve learned and want to see if I can do something like that.

Thank you for any light you can shed on the subject.

I leave you with a pun.

Sounds like a fun project. The place to start is with the laptop - research its manufacturer and model number.

IF those colors can be changed, you will most likely have to do it through some manufacturer settings.

This may not be much help directly, but it is a program that works with colors…
