Windows 10: Taskbar/Start Menu Automatic Color Selection Bug

    Taskbar/Start Menu Automatic Color Selection Bug

    I've got a slideshow of images set as my desktop background, and under the Personalization settings for Colors I have the three settings "Automatically pick an accent color", "Show color on Start, taskbar, and action center" and "Make start, taskbar, and action center" all switched to On.

    The problem is the accent color selection does not automatically refresh when the slideshow rolls to the next image. I have to either send the computer to sleep and wake it up, or toggle the "Automatically pick an accent color" slider in order to get it to refresh. Needless to say this is pretty impractical and I end up just sitting through the whole day with an accent color that only matches the first image of the slideshow.

    Does anybody have an explanation, solution or workaround for this problem? It's really bothering me because it was working perfectly in windows 8 and it looks pretty ugly on some of the combinations that roll around.

    If it helps anybody identify a fix, it looks like the super-thin window border telling you which window has focus is still updating color correctly, but nothing else, anywhere, does at all.

    This beautiful feature Works in my System - via Classic Shell -. I have an Ice Theme original from Microsoft, and when the wallpaper change, also change the colors in the taskbar and in the Classic Shell Menu Start.
