    Black Context Menu for Taskbar and Old Context Menu for Desktop


    Hello. Today I got an update, and I noticed afterwards that the Windows 10 context menu when you right click the desktop went back to the old version and not the Windows 10 version. Also, the context menu for right clicking in the taskbar turned black in the background. Not sure what changed and how to make things the way I remember. Thanks.

    That's how it is supposed tobe. Nothing wrong with your computer.

    For the first pic, yes that is what I get, but isn't the Windows 10 context menu supposed to be white and a bit more cleaner? Curious about these changes.

    I don't know.
    I am not as observant as you are.

    I think everything on the Taskbar and Start Menu is written in XAML, everything in Explorer is straight up Win32.
