Change color of taskbar on secondary monitor

34 discussion posts
While trying to fix a problem with my Chrome browser I changed the Windows 10 setting to dark mode and this made the taskbar on the secondary monitor black. I put it back to light mode and now the taskbar on that monitor is a grey color and I can't figure out how to get it back to the blue color it was before. In addition to DisplayFusion I use Start10, but I can't see any settings there for the secondary monitor. I tried reloading saved profile settings in DisplayFusion but that didn't help.


Found out what settings to change at this website:

I needed to make the following settings in Windows to get the desired color back on the secondary taskbar:
Settings > Personalization > Colors > Choose Your Color > Custom
Settings > Personalization > Colors > Choose your default Windows mode > Dark
Settings > Personalization > Colors > Show accent color on the following surfaces > ✔Start, taskbar, and action center

Edit 2021-02-05 If you have more than one Windows pc and you are signed in to your Microsoft account on all of them, make sure to uncheck "Theme" under Settings > Accounts > Sync your settings, unless you want them all to look the same!
