    So, if you turn on light theme the icons in taskbar (icon tray) like WiFi, volume etc turn black. Is it possible to use the black themes icons while using the overall dark theme on Windows?

    Apply dark theme to taskbar only

    I performed the April 2018 update, and afterwards noticed that my taskbar looked different.

    Old taskbar

    New taskbar

    In the colour menu within the personalisation menu, I found a setting labelled "choose your default app mode", with dark and light options. Setting it to dark makes the taskbar look the way I want it to, but applies the dark theme to all settings menus too.
    I want to apply the dark theme to the taskbar, and leave the light theme on in settings menus. Is this possible? This is how it was before the update.

    Thanks, Bardy.

    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 (see the attached screenshot - I circled the areas where those icons are in yellow) 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?

    Hmmm..., strange. I don't know what to suggest.
    Maybe a reboot?
