    Icon text color problem

    Windows 10: Taskbar problem. (Color makes it difficult to read text)

    Hello Leo,

    Having a gray colored text in the Start Menu means that you are using a different theme. You can follow these steps to resolved the issue:

    • Right-click on the Start/Windows icon and click on Control Panel.
    • Change the View by option to Small Icons and click on
      Personalization.
    • Under the Windows Default Themes, choose Windows so that the text will be white.

    For further queries, feel free to respond.

    Regards.
