  1. Setting up Drop Down Menus with Color


    I have two Excel spreadsheets that I drew up to help people in the office track their days off and whether they use sick, annual, holiday or admin leave, in addition to filling in the regular calendar. I created drop down menus to facilitate that.

    In the first spreadsheet, called "Leave Projections 2019 - Tom," I was able to make the sick, annual, holiday and admin come through as different colors as well.

    The second spreadsheet I've thrown together, however, has been kicking my butt. It's called "Leave Projections - 2019 - test," and it looks more like a traditional calendar, but every time I have tried doing the same thing as the other spreadsheet I can't get the same result. The sick, annual, holiday and admin won't come through as different colors. I've wasted countless hours to no avail.

    I'm hoping someone here can look at the second spreadsheet and figure out why it won't let me do what I did with the first one, maybe work some magic to create drop down menus to create the same effect as the first one. I'm at my wits end and would appreciate any assistance you all can lend. Thank you.

    :)

    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.
