    taskbar color (winver 1903)


    Hello,

    So I decided to change my theme today. When I did, my taskbar changed to a color I don't like. The problem? I don't have access to change it to a color of my choice. Why? Please see attached screenshot.

    Your new theme may have checked this for you. They can change stuff unless you tell them not to. Uncheck it if checked and see if that helps.

    If transparency is not important to you, you can disable it on the same page to get solid colours.

    Assuming your previous theme did not have this issue, have you tried putting it back on to see if you can get what you want?

    Yes I tried reverting the theme - no go.

    No Custom Color doesn't change the taskbar.

    I know that under 'Choose your Default Windows mode' it needs to be set to (●) Dark in order for the 'Start taskbar, and action center' option to be 'checked' under 'Show accent color on the following surfaces'.

    Otherwise it's grayed out.

    That option is muted, as you can see in my screenshot.

    Even with your 'Choose your Default Windows mode' set to Dark?
