    How, if at all possible, can i change these colors on the Taskbar?

    Hey there,

    I'd like to customize my Taskbar further than what is normally possible, and i'd really appreciate your help!

    If you can help, please guide me through how i could, if at all, change the following things:

    Note*: I'll gladly go into deep settings of my computer, if we're allowed to talk about that, i find the "Don't talk about hacking someones computer" Rule to be fairly vague in this sense, and i'm unsure of exactly what it means.

    The resting Windows Logo: On hover, it changes the color, but i'd like to have it always be changed color.

    The Taskbar background color: I'd like to have a darker shade of black.

    The Taskbar scrollbar?: I'd like to change the base, gray color, to a color of my choosing.

    End of bar Icons: I'd not expect any of it to change with a color code except for the time, but even if it would require re-coloring image files, i'm up for it

    That's all i'd really like to change, mainly changing it all to a specific hue of red so it would all fit together.

    Normally you change the color in Personalization with the theme settings and such, but if you want the taskbar different color I would suggest you check out There are some great customization features in Classicshell and you can still use the windows menu also at the same time. hope this is close to what you want.

    i personally don't use it, because if you change only one thing in "personalization section" in Win10 AFTER you made your changes, the changes don't take effect anyway (changes will be reset to default again).
    but if you know a possibility to change the color of explorer-body, scrollbars and buttons using standard(aero)-microsoft (light-colored-)theme, then let me know ...

    so long
