  1. Disable theme colors for start menu


    I just installed the May Update of Windows 10 and was seeing the new theme feature which lets us to choose between light or dark colors. I noticed that the light color on the taskbar looks great but doesn't look that nice in the start menu (I use the full screen start menu).


    So is there any way I can turn it off particularly for the start menu without affecting the taskbar?

    :)
