  2. Taskbar Clock font is black, unreadable

    The taskbar color is black by default and the icon font color in the notification area (lower right) is white except for the clock which is black. I can change the color of the taskbar to make the black clock font appear, but the color choices are limited.
    Why is the clock font black and all the others white? Can Microsoft fix this simple problem?

  3. How do I change the taskbar font color?

    I'm using a blue color for my taskbar that I like, and the font of taskbar programs is black, which is very hard to read. Ironically the font color for the clock (time and date) is white, and very easy to read.

    Is there any way to use have a white font for the taskbar?

    If it's not possible, then I'm fine using a third party program if it exists.

    What I find really funny is that white font is used throughout windows, except the taskbar where it's black.

    Same problem here. Can't read anything from the taskbar!

    I didn't have time to try AeroGlass yet... it xcould solve this problem. But why isn't it possible on W10???

    I had the same problem but only on a system that was upgraded from Windows 7. I did not have the problem with black font on taskbar on a fresh install of Windows 10. Tried exporting these keys from registry

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Colors
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\Colors

    from the fresh install Win10 and then importing to the one with black taskbar font... but it did not work or change anything.

    Then i created a new user in the upgraded system... and guess what - the taskbar font became white! So this made me think... maybe it is just keeping som stupid setting from my account created in the Windows 7 system that was then upgraded?

    Logged back on to that account, right-click desktop -> personalize -> themes -> theme settings -> and applied the theme "Windows" under the "Windows default themes" section. That did the trick without having to create a new user! Taskbar font is now white and clearly visible. *Smile

    Thanks for that. I waste far too much time trying to do things on a trial and error basis, rather than looking up the solutions!
