  1. Recent Windows Update changed start menu colors.


    A recent windows 10 update changed the background and tile colors. I have tried the fixes recommended but none of them work. I am not sure why this was done but the visibility of the tiles, etc based on the default color changes is very poor. How do I get back my old color scheme?

    :)

    Hi,

    You can change the background color of the the Start menu on Settings. To do this, follow the steps below:

    • Click the Windows logo (Start button).
    • Click the gear icon (Settings).
    • Choose Personalization.
    • Select Colors.
    • Under Show color on Start, taskbar, and action center, switch the slider to
      On.
    • After switching the slider to On, you can now pick what color you want or you can click the
      Automatically pick an accent color from my background checkbox to make Windows pick the color that complements the color of your desktop background.
    Kindly share with us the result after you perform the steps above.

    How to change the color for the Cortana settings menu?

    Hi Rohit,

    As per your description, I understand that you would like to change the color of Cortana settings page.

    I would like to inform you that it is not possible to change the color of Cortana settings page. However you may change the color of the Taskbar and the Start menu.

    Step 1:
    Right-click on desktop and then click Personalize.

    Step 2: In the left-pane, click
    Colors to see various settings on the right.

    Step 3: On the right-side, turn on the option labelled
    Show color on Start, taskbar, and action center. Make sure that the first option labelled
    Automatically pick an accent color from my background is turned
    off
    .

    I also suggest you to post your valuable suggestions in Windows feedback app. So, that developers will try to implement it in future Windows 10 updates to enhance user experience.

    Hope the information helps. Please do let us know if you need further assistance. We will be glad to assist you.
