  1. Changing the task bar accent colour


    After updating to build 1903, I'm trying to change the accent colour for the taskbar. There are 2 options under "Show the accent colour on the following surfaces". I can select the "Title bars and window borders" option OK but the "Start, taskbar and action centre" option is greyed out and I can't select it. Why not?

    :)

    Accent Colour Not Changing

    Hi,

    I upgraded to Windows 10 a couple of months ago, and I have my background changing automatically every 10 minutes. I also have set the option to change my accent colour with my background, but the accent colour won't change! For it to change, I have to lock
    the laptop and unlock it again, or turn the accent colour option off and on again.

    My drivers are all up to date, and I have tried reinstalling them. I have the latest version of Windows too. My brother has the exact same laptop as me, and the exact same driver versions (we compared), and his accent colour changes fine.

    I'd appreciate some help with this.

    Thanks! Changing the task bar accent colour :)

  3. Task bar task colours

    Why do different tasks on the task bar have different colours, and what do the colours mean?

    Windows 10 Accent Colours Automatically Changing

    My accent colour keeps changing.

    Every time I open the start menu, the accent changes to bright yellow. With a web browser, it's red. With the windows settings, it's blue.

    When I open the taskbar tray, the colour bugs out in such a way that and hovering over icons changes it from whatever colour it was back to yellow. This problem happens irrespective of having the accent colour chosen from my background or not.

    I have managed to stop the tray issue by disabling accent colour on start and taskbar, but it's still annoying. I haven't found anything online, mainly because the keywords for my problem just find people just asking how to change the colour in the first
    place.

    I do have Classic Shell and OldNewExplorer, however, the problem appeared before ONE, and even after uninstalling CS the problem persists.

    System:

    Toshiba Satellite Pro A50-C

    OS - Microsoft Windows 10 Home - build 10.0.15063.502 - 64-bit - update 1703 (Creators Update)

    CPU - i5-6200U

    RAM - 8GB
