    Half of my taskbar icons are black on black ||-( How to make visible?


    I find it unspeakably maddening that MS occasionally fiddles with basic UI settings and pesters users with "features" they never asked for! E.g. this "dark theme" that pops up everywhere is about as desirable and useful as a goiter. ||-(
    It may be useful to save a few milliwatts on a tablet or a phone but I never ever want to see that theme on my Work-PC!

    After the last Windows update (v1909 Build 18363.535) suddenly about half of my taskbar icons are now black on black (or to be precise: very dark on black), i.e. practically invisible unless one hovers over them (then they turn into black on dark gray and become just barely recognizable). This is such a thoughtless bullshit!

    How do I make my taskbar icons visible and usable again?

    :)

    Clock in the taskbar regularly half visible


    Hi PK76, welcome to the forums! Half of my taskbar icons are black on black ||-( How to make visible? :)

    Check your screen resolution is set to it's native setting,
    maybe try dragging some of the icons into the 'hide' box, see if that does anything.

  3. Black menus and taskbar

    I messed up my windows 10 settings, so now I see the taskbar and pop-up menus in black with black text. If I roll over them with the cursor, I can see the icons but no text. I've tried to change either the text or background to something visible, but since
    I can't read the menus I'm stuck.

    Maybe a keyboard shortcut?

    HELP!
