    Same issue, haven't found a workaround yet. Made my own thread about it before finding this one. There has to be a way, I'm certain of it - hopefully WinaeroTweaker'll be able to include it in a new release

    Make sure under PERSONALIZATION -> Colors you have all three options turned on. Then you will see the taskbar change colors to what you pick. Here's mine being purple.

    Yeah but again the issues isn't that you can't make it change colours, it's just that they always stay dark. I can change mine to any dark colour I want, but I can't make it the light grey I'm used to

    It should change with the wallpaper color if all three are turned on. I set a grey background, and my taskbar changed to light grey. Or is that still to dark?

    Yeah I'd still call that very dark grey/nearing on black. What I'm talking about is changing it so it matches the light grey explorer accent colour, which hasn't been a problem in previous versions of Windows.

    I just installed an update to Start10 and can now make the taskbar a light gray.

    Which update? Was it KB3081438? I still see no light gray option in Personalization > Colors.
