    Cortana search bar color


    Brink, our admin, has a wonderful tutorial on this subject :
    Change Color of Cortana Search Box to White in Windows 10

    May I be so bold as to post an alternative which will change the search bar from White to default Grey.
    *** if this method has been posted here before, I apologize. ***

    Settings > Time &n Language > Region & language > change Country or region to a country not accepted by Cortana, such as Gabon > reboot.
    Cortana search bar is changed to grey colour.
    After reboot, back to Region & Country > change the country back to the original one.
    Cortana search bar will remain grey in colour.
