    Black background

    I just upgraded to Windows 10 and my desktop theme/picture is fine, but my task bar and all other screens have a black back ground. How do I change this?

    Go to settings then Personalisation then colours
    That is where you can alter your background colours
    Also Taskbar

    If using Edge there is a dark theme and a light theme.
    Click on 3 dots top right hand corner, then Settings, under choose a setting you have the choice Dark or Light.

Hi there. When I go into Settings and set the Background picture/slideshow, I always see letters on the sample screen, like 'Aa' and 'Sample Text'. What can you do with that? I don't find any explanations anywhere. Thank you.
