Windows 10: How to get rid of the line under the taskbar icons ?
thanks Jeff, although the underline is not annoying, its superfluous to windows, as i know what programs are active .. as they are in my taskbar lol. As i have my active icons in the centre of the taskbar, and the pinned icons on the left.
Your very welcome.. there might be some way of doing this but as of now short of changing the code there is no registry hack that I know of.
I would love to get rid of this annoying line also. Its the last thing needed to make Windows 10 OK in my opinion. The start menu can be fixed up with Classic Shell and the rest looks & works fine.
Welcome to the Ten Forums
With the help from the Windows Style Builder forum I was able to get rid of those lines.
It is a custom theme if you want to use it you need to install UxStyle which I have provided in the folder below with the theme.
This is how to open up the control panel if you don't know how Control Panel - Open in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums
First you need to turn off the UAC User Account Control (UAC) - Change Settings in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums slide the slider all the way down (Be sure to put it back to where you had it when done installing everything and reboot), and then afterwards reboot your computer, and then install UxStyle and then restart your computer again, put the NoLine folder and the NoLine.theme file in C:/Windows/resources/themes folder, then double-click on the NoLine.theme file and if all went well you should have no lines under the open windows and programs, this only works on the taskbar when it's on the bottom.
I lowered my monitor refresh rate from 75Hz to 60 Hz and the lines disappeared.
Different colored lines
Does anyone know what the different line colors represent? My Outlook has a red line while other programs are underline in blue.
I think its a nice feature. It doesn't effect anything. I think its supposed to be that way I don't think there is anyway to change it.
This solution does not seem to be working anymore (at least with the latest updates) - could you please-please update the theme if possible?
The taskbar lines are horrible visually - they're only necessary if you have pinned shortcuts, and need to distinct them from the other icons - if you have old-style taskbar view, and a dark taskbar background, they literally glow, distracting the desktop, and without any real use (all the taskbar items are underlined).
I have a high resolution screen, so the taskbar seems disproportionately small by default/ In prior versions of Windows I would just increase the taskbar height and icons would adjust in size accordingly, but not so with Windows 10. How can I resize...
I am using Windows 10240 and I have the latest iTunes 12.2.1 installed. I have it pinned to my taskbar but when I open it it creates a second icon for iTunes on the taskbar. I have tried unpinning and repinning both icons several times but that...
Does anyone know how to customise the behaviour of icons so they always show in the taskbar?
Remove Search Icon from Windows 10 Taskbar:
1. Type regedit in RUN or Start search box and press Enter. It'll open Registry Editor.
2. Now go to following key:
I get that they feel the need to put new stuff in... but this just annoys the crap right outta me. I'm opening programs, and no freakin icon is appearing in my task bar.
Please oh please tell me there's a way to eliminate this latest...
