Windows 10: Since new update taskbar jumplists cannot be read anymore

    Since new update taskbar jumplists cannot be read anymore

    I have a seemingly trivial problem, but I cannot solve it despite my omniscient friend Google.
    A few days ago my Windows 10 did a Windows Update again, and since this time I can no longer read my taskbar jumplists.
    This is quite annoying, because I rely a lot on them at my daily work, but regardless what I try, I cannot change the color of the text.
    It looks like WindowsUpdate changed the color of the taskbar jumplist to black on black.
    Does anybody know if this can be changed somewhere ?
    I found a comparable problem in the net with Windowss 8.1, and there is mentioned that KB3072318 must be uninstalled, but I have Windows10 and there is no such fix.
    See what I mean:

    Thanks for any help, Herbert

    Hi @Herbert , welcome to! :)
    I noticed in your screenshot, transparent headers; it may have something to do with that.
    Try, uninstalling the program, rebooting then re-install the program.

    Hi Edwin,

    Which program ?
    The jumplists are generated by Explorer, regardless from which taskbar icon I open them.
    The above screenshot is the one from Explorer itself, the below e.g. is from Firefox.

    Perhaps I was 'grasping at straws', but I had noticed, in the screenshot, that you have a program open with a transparent header, which is not 'standard MS issue'.
    I had similar issues with "Glass8" until I uninstalled it, rebooted and re-installed it.
    Not sure if that is where your issue lies at all but, like I said I'm just 'spitballing' here.
