Windows 10 taskbar color settings are operated in “color settings” instead of taskbar settings. When you change the taskbar color settings, the start menu, the frame of the opened window, the background color of the tiles, etc. will also be changed at the same time. This page introduces how to change the color of the taskbar.
Set taskbar color
Open the Windows color settings screen
Click the Windows mark and click Settings.
Click “Color” on the left menu.
Change taskbar color
Click the box for ‘Choose a color’ and select ‘Custom’.
Select the color of the taskbar
Click the color you want to set in “Windows Colors”.
If you don’t have a favorite color, you can create a color by clicking “Custom Color”.
This is a color like this because of the “transparency effect”. This is because if the background color is dark, the color of the taskbar becomes muddy due to the transparency effect, and if the background color is light, it becomes light.
- If you turn off the transparency effect, the color of the taskbar will be clear as shown below.
- What is different from the set color is the specification of Windows to make the border between other colors and the “taskbar” clear.
- You can set the transparency effect to “on” or “off” as you like
You can display the window frame by checking the “Title bar and window borders” box. The width and color settings for the window frame are introduced on another page below.
Select a color
The settings selected here will change the color of all displays, such as the taskbar, start menu, and explorer. If you want to set the color yourself, select “Custom”.
You can set the display color of the taskbar and start menu and the display color of apps such as Explorer and setting screens individually.
It is also happening that the color of the taskbar changes after the update.
