    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).
