    what do the colours mean on taskbar apps


    chrome is running with a blue line underneath but steam has a yellow line and it's half highlighted yellow but it's not downloading or running anything and it's been like that for the past 10 minutes

    so what do the colours mean and why is the steam one like that?

    thanks

    Hi @cxztiel
    Welcome to tenforums.com!

    My guess is blue is your accent color and the yellow is something loading in Steam and may have gotten hung up. A guess though.

    I'll second Edwin's guess that blue is your accent color, cxztiel, because blue is my accent color too, and my Edge taskbar icon has the same color line under it. I don't have Steam, so I can't say anything authoritative about that.

    If you have something downloading from Steam that could be the reason. Normally it should show the accent color the same as other icons.
