Windows 10: My taksbar is dark grey and i want it to be black

    My taksbar is dark grey and i want it to be black

    ok so this seems like a pretty easy fix, but its not, at least for me.

    my taskbar is dark grey instead of black. ive tried everything i can to make it black but i just cant do it. ive already unchecked the "show accent color on the start, taskbar, and action center" box. i have transparency off. i tried going back to the original theme but the taskbar stays the same.

    and i cant make my "windows color" black. it says its not supported. every image i see of people using windows 10 has the taskbar black so i dont see why i cant get mine to be black.

    heres what mine looks like. i put something black behind it so you can really tell the difference

    thanks for the help
