  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.

  3. Readability Taskbar Windows 10

    Hello Frans,

    Thank you for visiting Microsoft Community and providing us with the detailed description about the issue.

    As per the description, I understand that you are experiencing issue with
    the desktop icon text color on your Windows 10 operating system.

    I certainly understand your concern and will try my best to help you.

    I would like to provide you with the information that
    with default settings, Windows 10 uses black color for Start menu, taskbar and action center. While the default black color looks nice and goes well with the default wallpaper, after using Windows 10 for a while, you might want
    to change your taskbar color to your desired color.

    Microsoft has included a number of settings to customize taskbar and Start menu in Windows 10. You can make Start menu and taskbar transparent, add or remove the search box from the taskbar, and configure taskbar to use the
    color of desktop background or set your own custom color.

    I would suggest you to try the steps given below and check if that helps.


    • Right-click on desktop and then click Personalize option to Personalization section of Settings app.

    • In the left-pane, click
      Colors
      to see various settings on the right.

    • On the right-side, turn on the option labelled
      Show color on Start, taskbar, and action center. Make sure that the first option labelled
      automatically pick an accent color from my background is turned
      off.

    • Now, under Choose your accent color, click on a tile to select and set it as the color for your taskbar, Start menu and action center.
    The other method is:


    • Open Personalization section of Settings app. To do so,
      right-click on desktop and then click Personalize.

    • On the left-side, click
      Colors
      .

    • Now, on the right-side, turn on the following options:

    • Automatically pick an accent color from my background

    • Show color on Start, taskbar, and action center.
    That’s it! From here onwards, whenever you change the desktop background and the color of taskbar and Start menu will also be changed automatically.

    The above steps holds good for Windows 10 as well.

    For more information:

    I would suggest you to refer to the suggestions provided by
    “Andre Da Costa” replied on January 22, 2015 in the following Microsoft Community link.
