    border around items in the taskbar

    I have Windows 10 and I have Classic Shell installed.

    I like my taskbar items to be Uncombined, Showing labels.

    But no matter what settings I try, my taskbar no longer displays items with a border. If you see my screenshot, you'll see the items on my taskbar are displayed as just words, with no border around them.

    How do I get the appearance of a border back, like I had in Windows 7?

    Borders are removed in Windows 10. Only Windows 8.1 and earlier have borders.
