    Windows taskbar icons broke


    I have had a few times when the windows icons do not do anything when left clicking.
    The windows Start menu , cortana icon , notification panel, clock.
    All of my desktop icons work fine.
    Anyone have an idea what needs to be done to get this going again?

    Thank you

    :)

  2. Active window taskbar icon color stand out windows 10

    Hi,

    As you are already familiar with this problem, no matter how you change the colors of the taskbar icons you still cannot see which window is active. In windows XP it was so clear without mucking around with colors and themes it purely showed which window
    was active like it was indented into the screen. whereas windows 7 just changes the shade of the color. I hoped that this would change in windows 10, but unfortunately it hasn't.

    I don't know why Microsoft broke from something that works so well. But can you please advise on how to make a change back to the way windows XP displays the selected window icon on the taskbar.

    Please understand that I am not asking to revert back to windows XP taskbar looks. I only want to be able to have the option to see the selected window icon on my taskbar. Right now, windows 7 or 10 simply adds a slight white shade on top of the selected
    icon on the taskbar and unfortunately this doesn't work well.

    Thanks,

    Cheers,

    Joe

  3. Black screen, non-working taskbar

    I have Windows 10. I ended windows explorer in task manager, Windows processes) to try and work on taskbar (it was semi-responsive) and all heck broke loose. I now have a black screen and only know how to get back in task manager. Pressing the windows
    icon key or clicking search box does NOTHING. Clicking on any icon does nothing. Please help. Restart makes no change. What have I done? What can I do? Thank you
