How to use
When running, Illuminate puts an icon in the notification area and loads the last set of colours it was using. Illuminate is started automatically by having a shortcut in the Start Menu "Startup" folder.
Double-click on the icon to open the Illuminate window. It should appear near to the notification area, wherever you have the Windows taskbar positioned. Move the window by clicking and dragging with the middle mouse button.
Edit the colour by clicking on the three bands, one each for the hue, saturation and brightness of the colour. You can store up to five colours by clicking on the numbered boxes at the bottom. You can make Illuminate loop through the colours using the "loop" button in the bottom right corner.
Right-click on the Illuminate icon to open a context menu. In the menu you can choose how fast Illuminate should loop through the five presets and how fast the colours should fade from one to another.
Hide the Illuminate window using the down-arrow button in the bottom left corner of the window.
When the lights don't do anything please go to the Direct Control and check if the height settings of the peripherals are set to "none".
Illuminate can Import and Export its settings so users can store and share them. Save your current settings as a ".lights" file by choosing "Export" from the Illuminate icon context menu. Choose a ".lights" file from the import dialogue or simply drag it on to the Illuminate window to load it.
