    Windows 10 Pro Taskbar tooltips and font color


    I upgraded from Windows 7 Pro. Currently running Windows 10 Pro Build 10586 and Classic Shell 4.2.5

    Performance Visual effects Custom:
    - Show thumbnails instead of icons
    - Smooth edges of screen fonts

    I need help with two annoyances:

    1. How do I change the color of the text in the taskbar? The font is black. I would prefer the font to be white. Please take a look at the attached image.

    2. When I have a lot of folders open, Windows groups them in one. In Windows 7, I would get the name of the folder on hover. Windows 10 shows me a small icon of the folder (I've disabled this functionality via registry. High value for time). Is there any way to get the Windows 7 functionality?

    Thanks in advance.

    :)

  2. date and time missing from taskbar

    For some reason I can't see the date and time on the taskbar in Windows 10. I know the date is there because when I hover over where it should be it shows in the tooltip. I thought the font and background might be set to the same color but that doesn't
    seem to be it. I'm not using the small icons on the taskbar. One suggestion I found says to right-click on the taskbar for properties but there isn't an empty spot to right-click on. I must be missing an easy solution but I can't find the correct setting.
    Can someone help?

    Hello @kyoshiro, welcome to tenforums.com! *Smile

    Try playing around with darker backgrounds and colors, restarting Explorer between each, to try for white text.

    If you hide labels, you will see folder name on mouse hover, if you don't hide labels, they will be on the taskbar:

    I found out that the font color issue happens when you upgrade from Windows 7. To resolve this, go into Themes and pick the Windows Theme. This resets the font color in the taskbar.

    Still trying to find a solution to my second issue. I understand what you are saying, but that's not the functionality I want or need.

    Windows 7+ Taskbar tweaker resolves this as well. The setting is under hovering, select list. Now, if I can only find the registry tweak for this, so I don't have to run the program. *Smile

    This is the actual functionality I was asking about. It can be accomplished with W7+ Taskbar tweaker, but I was wondering if somebody knows a registry tweak.

    When folders are combined on the taskbar, I want to see a list, like in Windows 7, not the stupid preview.
