According to my test, the color remains although you close the Windows Tile Color Changer program. This should be good news for users since it doesn’t have to run in the background or slowing down the startup process.

Please note that this app is not perfect (yet). Some programs like Microsoft Office and Firefox restrict changing color so you can’t modify the tile of these programs.

Nevertheless, the majority of programs should be work perfectly. Also, Windows Tile Color Changer is portable which means you can simply delete the app if you want to uninstall it.
