    Taskbar Color Change


    I did a W10 update yesterday. (W10, Version 2004. OS Build 19041.450) It changed the look of a lot of things on my computer in small ways. Have been able to address most, if not all, of those except my taskbar changed from black to white. Every time I try and change the color of the taskbar back to black, the action changes the background color of things like my chosen search engine, (DuckDuckGo) Action Center and lists I have in files to black also. The only thing I'm trying to change to black is the taskbar.

    To change the color of the taskbar, I go to Start>Settings>Personalization>Colors> then I choose Dark>and check Automatically pick an accent color from my background. Then I check Start, Taskbar and Action Center to designate what I want dark. Then when I go to my search engine or files, the backgrounds are dark and I can't find a way to change them back to white without affecting the taskbar.

    :)

  2. Changing the taskbar color to white in Windows 10

    Hi Michael,

    Thank you for contacting Microsoft Community. Your interest in Windows 10 is much appreciated.

    In Windows 10 there is no option for changing the color to white but you can change it to different colors. To change the color of the task bar I suggest you to follow the below steps and check if it helps.

    • In the search box, type settings.
    • Then select personalization.
    • Click on color option on the left side.
    • You will find an option called “show color on start, taskbar and start icon”.
    • You need to on the option and then you can change the color accordingly.
    Hope this information was helpful and do let us know if you need further assistance. We will be glad to assist.

    Color change in taskbar

    Hello pranayvarma,

    Just to verify, have you tried changing the color of your taskbar via settings? If so, try it out and check if the color would remain inconsistent. Here are the steps:

    1. Launch the Settings app.
    2. Select Personalization.
    3. Click the Colors tab.
    4. Uncheck the Automatically pick an accent color from my background.
    5. Set Transparency effects to Off.
    6. Under Show accent color on the following surfaces, put a check on
      Start, taskbar, and action center.
    7. Pick a color that you want.
    8. Restart your PC.

    Let us know the outcome.
