  • I guess I am missing what you are looking for.  I happened to have a slide show for a background which was red when I snipped the below.  What build are you on?

  • Hi Ameen,

    The main issue is to change the taskbar color, right?

    Please check this link:

    Change the colors on your computer


    Please ensure you have chosen an Aero theme and then we could change the taskbar color.

    If the Aero won`t work, we could choose the "Troubleshoot problem with transparency and other Aero effects" option to have a troubleshoot.

    Best regards
