    Taskbar colour


    Since the 1903 update, my taskbar is a light colour. I have been to settings, colour, but the 'start menu, taskbar, action center' box is greyed out.
    If I change main colour to dark then all folders go dark. I only want a dark taskbar.
    Any help appreciated.
    Thank you.

    :)

    Independent taskbar and window border colours?


    One of the things I find most annoying about Windows 7, being a long-time XP user, is the lack of independent colour settings for the various GUI elements, for example, the taskbar, active window title bar and active window border colours are not separately settable. I see no reason whatsoever why this has to be so - XP offered far, far more flexibility in this respect.

    As far as I can see, we still have the same situation with Windows 10. It appears to be impossible to have the taskbar a different colour to the active window title bar and border. It is even impossible to get the taskbar to be a solid colour - it is always transparent. There is not even a Windows 7-like opacity control. A massive step backwards in user personalisation control.

    And why doe the window border have to be so thin? I can hardly see it at all.

    Taskbar colour

    change colour in calendar

    unfortunately you cannot just change the text colour of the date.

    Is there a way to make a suggestion for this?

    in the mean time, i will have to turn off the use of accent colours on the taskbar.

    shame i can't use the blue colour i wanted Taskbar colour :(
