Once Windows 10 is activated you can go into the Personalizations>Color settings and turn on the switch for seeing color added to the Start and main taskbar as well as change themes, wallpapers, or any number of other things as long as they are updated for 10 as far as any 3rd party decorations? are concerned. The black Start and taskbar were that way on the 10240 before activation took place when looking back on that when it looked a bit all too familiar.
I don't think you fully understood my post or my pictures. But thank you anyways.
Yep, I do understand how things can change. I just recently bought a slightly used Desktop (only 1 year old) that came with a 27" monitor WoW what a difference, I almost don't need my glasses....almost.....I have always preferred desktops thou, I have 3 of them, but retired one last week, even thou it still runs fine. I'll keep it as a backup. I like to tear them apart and upgrade them, and laptops for me are just too hard to work on, cause everything is small, and my eyes are old.
BTW, has anybody noticed that the system uses less RAM? On my 12 GB laptop, set up as I want with startup items I need, I had 8.5 to 8.8 GB available in 10576 after signing in and opening my browser with its four homepage tabs.
Now in 10586, exactly the same setup and startup items, I have constantly over 9.5 GB.
I notice it every time I sign in because my Maxthon browser's status bar is always showing me the CPU usage, DL & UL speed and the available RAM:
