    Update to 1903 - Start Menu color can't be changed


    Greetings,

    After I installed the latest update (1903) my (full screen) start menu colour defaulted to black and can't be changed anymore.

    I’m able to change the colour under "personalize" and the colour changes everywhere - except my start menu. If I change the start menu from full screen to the alternative version the chosen colour is applied, but when I change it back the menu changes to black again.

    The transparency option doesn't work either on the menu but works on the taskbar.

    Has anybody else experienced it and maybe found a solution? I already reset the start menu layout with the tools provided in this forum - as well as used the start menu trouble-shooter.

    Thank you for any possible solutions. If you need any additional information, I'll try to provide it.

    :)

  2. Start menu background was black after updated to build 1903.

    Previously I set my taskbar to blue and the start menu background also reflected that. After upgraded to 1903, the start menu background was black.

    • I already set Default Windows Mode to Dark
    • I checked the box 'Show Accent color - Start, taskbar, and action center. I set the color to blue but the Start menu's background was not changed.
    • I have the latest NVIDIA driver.
    • Checked for Windows update and there was no update.

    Interestingly, this only happened if I set the start menu to full screen. If it's not in full screen mode, the background was blue.

    Start Menu background color customize

    Hi,

    You can change the background color of the the Start menu on Settings. To do this, follow the steps below:

    • Click the Windows logo (Start button).
    • Click the gear icon (Settings).
    • Choose Personalization.
    • Select Colors.
    • Under Show color on Start, taskbar, and action center, switch the slider to
      On.
    • After switching the slider to On, you can now pick what color you want or you can click the
      Automatically pick an accent color from my background checkbox to make Windows pick the color that complements the color of your desktop background.
    Kindly share with us the result after you perform the steps above.
