multi-taskbar system tray has no color.

I've been having a bug for a while and I cannot figure out how to fix it. my system tray on my second and third monitors has no color... the gradient from the theme is showing but the color is missing.... if there's white on the screen behind it, the color is white, black orange etc etc.

I've tried everything I can think of and I can't find much info about this particular problem on google.

the second photo is a bit big but it shows the system trays across all monitors...

I've done some searching and tried what this thread recommended

https://www.displayfusion.com/Discussions/View/taskbar-not-displaying-background-in-systray-of-2nd-monitor/?ID=3234e679-fc9e-4a9a-b77c-76c31b5068bd

didn't work, so for now I've disabled the display fusion taskbar and enabled the built in windows one then turned on the start menu using start 10

This issue is on our list to fix up, so I've added your info to the open ticket. We'll be sure to let you know if/when we've gotten it sorted out.

Thanks!

Is this issue still outstanding?
Attached is a very long screenshot of my 3 monitors. The middle one seems to be using Native windows functionality (if I right click, I get the Windows context menu). But the 1st and 3rd one are being controlled by DisplayFusion. The background of the monitor is bleeding into the tray instead of the dark background.

I'm a bit let down that over 2 years later this still hasn't been fixed.

My solution? Disable the clock and system tray on everything but the main screen.

You guys should definitely fix this. It honestly can't be that difficult.

Is there a way that I can use the native Windows version, like I see on my middle screen, on all the monitors?

assuming you're using windows 10 you are able to utilize it's taskbar across all screen as long as you disable to display fusion multi-monitor taskbar.

But that would mean one taskbar all the way across, right?

Hi all! I believe that system tray transparency bug can be resolved by disabling the custom taskbar colour and/or texture settings in the Start10 settings window.
