  1. Taskbar Color is white-will not change


    I connected my laptop to my parents wi-fi to help them put together a project. When I did that, my laptop theme changed and matched their computer background and my taskbar turned white. I am not sure how that happened but I was able to change the theme back. The taskbar color, however, remains white and will not let me change it. I go to personalization and colors, but when I scroll down to the bottom, the option to show accent color on start, taskbar, and action center is greyed out. It will not allow me to check the box. I have tried updating and restarting my laptop with no effect. Any ideas on how to fix this? I have searched online multiple times but have not been able to find anything.

  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.

    Changing the taskbar color to white in Windows 10

    Before upgrading to Windows 10 (I had 8.1), my taskbar was a transparent white. When I upgraded, it was the default black color. For some reason, even if I change the color in Personalize, it stays gray. I want it to be white. How can I fix this?
