It’s quite rare to see any modern gaming PC without any sort of RGB Lighting Accessories. Gamers prefer to deck out both the interiors and exteriors of their PCs with RGB Lighting Accessories like RGB Fans, RAM Sticks, CPU Coolers, Keyboards, Mouse, etc.
Now generally a third-party software is required to control the RGB Lighting of these accessories. Furthermore, it’s quite difficult to control the accessories of one particular brand using the software of a different brand and vice versa.
Luckily, the aforementioned problem can soon be fixed as Microsoft is working to bring native support for RGB PC gaming accessories to Windows 11.
A Twitter user even spotted early work for integrating this new lighting experience into Windows 11 confirming that the feature is indeed coming to Windows 11.
New settings for device lighting make an appearance in build 25295. Is this the beginning of the end for low quality RGB gamer gear apps? 🎮 The spec for this is from 2018 and references to the feature have been around for years. Not cancelled after all 🥳https://t.co/oG4JbKsoeB pic.twitter.com/bMtxCH8REo

As you can see in the screenshots users will soon be able to control stuff like brightness, lighting effects, speed, and colors from within the settings app of Windows 11.
It’s worth noting that at the time of writing this article, Microsoft hasn’t officially announced the support for RGB Lighting. However, Microsoft is working on several experimental features that will be dropped with a major Windows 11 update.
