Windows 10: Taskbar color customization

    Taskbar color customization


    Taskbar color choices are extremely limited in W10, very difficult to read tabs. What is wrong with MS.....?

    I tried run<"control color">, but it was useless as well.

    Is there any external tools that will allow me to customize taskbar color independently from accent colors and borders.

    I saw some suggestions to modify registry, but I do not want to go this route.

    The OP has already said this option was useless for him. He accessed it by typing "control color" in Run.

    The Difference is IF you first choose a HIGH CONTRAST THEME then you have the option to pic ANY color in the palette. :)
