    Help with taskbar color and accents


    Hi, all.



    In the past, it was possible to have a taskbar of a color (black/gray and perhaps white and I forgot) and then the accent colors would not change the color of the taskbar itself, but only of the accents (The apps pinned,etc).



    I can't seem to do this in the latest version.

    Am I missing something or is there a registry trick to do this like I used to?



    Help is greatly appreciated.

    Color change in taskbar

    Hello pranayvarma,

    Just to verify, have you tried changing the color of your taskbar via settings? If so, try it out and check if the color would remain inconsistent. Here are the steps:

    1. Launch the Settings app.
    2. Select Personalization.
    3. Click the Colors tab.
    4. Uncheck the Automatically pick an accent color from my background.
    5. Set Transparency effects to Off.
    6. Under Show accent color on the following surfaces, put a check on
      Start, taskbar, and action center.
    7. Pick a color that you want.
    8. Restart your PC.

    Let us know the outcome.
