Compared to the older version of Windows, Windows 10 has more features and customization options. On Windows 10, you get the ability to change the Start menu color, taskbar color, etc. We have already shared an article on how to change the Start menu color. Today, we will be discussing the same for the Taskbar.
Since Taskbar is one of the most used features of Windows 10, it makes sense to change its color. With the default settings, the Taskbar and Start menu in Windows 10 shows a grey or black background. However, it can be changed in just a few clicks.
What’s more interesting is that Windows 10 also lets you change the taskbar color to match the desktop background. With that setting, Windows 10 automatically picks an accent color from your desktop background.

If you are unable to change the taskbar color for any reason, then you need to use a third-party application called ‘Taskbar X.’ Taskbar X is a taskbar customization app that offers lots of features. With Taskbar X, you can hide the primary start button, hide the primary tray, centralize icons, etc.
