Users of the Windows 11 operating system can modify the interface in a number of ways to suit their preferences. While some of those adjustments are simple to perform, several features are buried deep within the Settings app or require registry editing.
The Taskbar’s color can be changed as one such adjustment on the Windows 11 operating system by using the Settings application. There is a way to alter the taskbar’s color to black if you don’t want to utilize the default taskbar for whatever reason.
The taskbar icons stand out more due to the darker background, even though it’s merely an aesthetic modification and doesn’t really change much.
This step-by-step tutorial will show you how to use the Settings program on a computer running Windows 11 to quickly and easily enable the Dark or Black taskbar.
Step 1: Open the Settings application on your Windows 11 computer.
Step 2: When the app opens, select the “Personalization” option from the left sidebar.
Step 3: After that, on the right side pane, select the “Colors” option.
Step 4: In there, enable the Dark Theme by selecting “Dark” for the choose your mode section.
Step 5: Then, toggle the switch off for the Transparency effects option.
Step 6: Scroll down and turn off the “Show accent color on Start and taskbar” option.
I’m done now. Following the following step-by-step instructions, you have successfully made the Taskbar’s color black. There are further ways to activate the taskbar in black without switching the system themes to Dark, which will be covered in a different guide.
