Windows 10’s May 2019 Update includes a new light theme. Windows 10 had two color modes – light and dark. Microsoft redesigned the light theme so that apps, elements and other core UI elements are all shaded light. To change the Theme settings go to Settings > Personalization > Themes. Default Theme is light therefore Windows 10 taskbar is dark grey or light (white), some people want to change taskbar and start menu color into Dark preferably black.

The inactive window color doesn’t seem to work on the latest win10 update, i enter 000000 for pure black but it still is grey.
Hello, Colors Sometimes Microsoft does not give the actual code. You have to try and find it. This color code worked for me. Can you try “000202”?
This app is awesome… Great little app… Is there anyway to change the startup and windows is shutting down background black as well…

I searched everywhere for a solution to make my taskbar black until I found your site… Many many hours… I was desperate for this because I have a few black spots at the bottom of my monitor and this was the only way to hide the problem… It also looks amazing with all black everything… Now I only have to look at them when I start and shutdown my machine… Thank you so much…
Thanks for comment. It would be nice if it was black when closing and opening it. We work on this.
A very nice app, keep it up!!!
