    change colour in calendar

    unfortunately you cannot just change the text colour of the date.

    Is there a way to make a suggestion for this?

    in the mean time, i will have to turn off the use of accent colours on the taskbar.

    shame i can't use the blue colour i wanted Changing Taskbar Colour :(

    Hello Desmond,

    We regret for the inconvenience. Let me assist you with additional information from here.

    From the description provided, I understand that the Taskbar is not showing correct color compositions.

    With default settings, Windows 10 uses black color for Start menu, taskbar and action center.
    I suggest you to follow the below methods and see if it helps in the current situation.

    Method 1

    Follow the below recommendation in order to set the color composition of your preference.

    A. Change the taskbar color to your desired one.

    Step 1: Right-click on desktop and then click Personalize option to Personalization section of Settings app.

    Step 2: In the left-pane, click Colors to see various settings on the right.

    Step 3: On the right-side, turn on the option labelled
    Show color on Start, taskbar, and action center
    . Make sure that the first option labelled
    Automatically pick an accent color from my background is turned

    Step 4: Now, under Choose your accent color, click on a tile to select and set it as the color for your taskbar, Start menu and action center.

    B. Change the taskbar color to match desktop background.

    Step 1: Open Personalization section of Settings app. To do so,
    right-click on desktop and then click Personalize.

    Step 2: On the left-side, click Colors.

    Step 3: Now, on the right-side, turn on the following options:

    • Automatically pick an accent color from my background.
    • Show color on Start, taskbar, and action center.

    Method 2

    Try to find out if you can change the way the Windows Theme looks like.

    1. Type in the Search bar Change the Theme

    2. Choose any one under Windows Default Themes.

    You can also tweak the color and appearance of taskbar, Windows borders and Start Menu.

    1. Open the Settings Charm with the shortcut, Windows key

    2. Click on the Personalization.

    3. Click on the Color.

    4. Choose your color and click on Save changes.

    5. The color of the taskbar, window borders and start menu is now changed.

    Please write to us with the updated information for us to be able to assist you further.

    Thank you.
