  1. Taskbar font colors

    I could barely see my time on the taskbar dark grey on black. the quick start icons were in white font and the date was in mid grey. I tried personalization and now it is all dark grey in black... I did that by changing the taskbar color. I can change my font type but not color... any ideas?

  2. Taskbar Font Color Change w/o changing themes

    Hi Lucas,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    Lucas, unfortunately, there is no option to only change the Taskbar Font Color in Windows. However, you can change the whole Taskbar color by going to
    Settings > Personalization > Colors and choose a color which is best suitable for you to read the font of the Taskbar.

    The option to change the font color of the Taskbar seems to be a great suggestion, so I suggest you to post your feedback in

    Feedback Hub
    , where the Developer Team can review the idea.
