Taskbars - Windows 10 vs Windows 11

Sunday, August 22, 2021 by kona0197 | Discussion: Personal Computing

This has been driving me nuts. On my main computer I run the latest version of Windows 10. I run a solid black taskbar. No transparency. The taskbar is a good solid true black color with crisp, detailed icons. On the test computer running Windows 11 I use the same settings. Call me crazy, but on 11 the black is not as black as it should be and the icons are not as crisp and detailed. Both machines are the same model, so it's not a hardware or software issue. Has anyone else noticed this? Or is it just my eyes?

Hi there, I have been using windows 11 for a few days macys insite and I have noticed what you are trying to say mypascoconnect and it is absolutely true. There's a difference in color.

Yeah Kona, it's true. It doesn't go full black. Transparency off. It gets a little darker if you turn off 'Show accent color on Start and taskbar' but not full black.

 Start 11 will let you use full black on the taskbar though

Turn off automatic color.

Choose your color

Make sure transparency is off.
