How to change the taskbar color in Windows 11

Configurare noua (How To)


It’s easy to personalize Windows 11 by adding color to the taskbar.


Open the Settings app by pressing Windows+i on your keyboard. Or you can right-click the taskbar and select “Settings” in the menu that appears.

In Windows 11, right-click the Start button and select "Settings."

In Settings, click “Personalization” in the sidebar, then select “Colors.”

In Windows 11 Settings, select "Personalization" in the sidebar, then click "Colors."

Under “Colors,” locate the option labeled “Choose Your Mode” and select “Custom” from the drop-down list.

Under "Choose Your Mode," select "Custom."

Use the drop-down menu beside “Choose your default Windows mode” to select “Dark.” This is a key step that will allow you to apply an accent color to the taskbar ahead.

In "Choose your default Windows mode," select "Dark."

Next, scroll down to the “Accent Color” section and click a color in the grid you’d like to use for your taskbar. If you don’t see one you like, you can choose “View Colors” below the grid to pick a custom color.

Choose an accent color or pick a custom one by clicking "View Colors."

Flip the switch beside “Show accent color on Start and taskbar” to the “On” position. (If you see this option greyed out, make sure you selected “Dark” under “Choose your default Windows mode,” as shown above. Accent colors don’t apply to the taskbar in “Light” Windows mode.)

Switch "Show accent color on Start and taskbar" to "On."

Instantly, you’ll see the accent color you selected applied to the taskbar.
