    Search bar glitches and changes colour

    Windows taskbar search changed colour/become unreadable (Win 10 build 10240)


    Thank you for your response.

    We suggest trying the following steps to check if the Cortana search bar changes the color.

    • Go to Settings.
    • Choose Personalization.
    • Once inside the Personalization window, on the left pane, choose Colors.
    • At the bottom of the Colors section, choose Dark as the app theme.

    After this, restart the PC and see how it goes. If it doesn't work, reverse the steps given and then restart the PC again. If it fails again, please do let us know.
