Windows 10 has brought a default Windows wallpaper and theme which has a blue window with a beautiful composition or blue light and mist. As we have told you earlier that Microsoft spent a huge energy, power and money in bringing out this unique theme. The wallpaper is different and unique in the sense that it is not a photoshopped image or drawing but a real photograph of a glass window with special effects of laser. However, you can change many features like color of the taskbar, action center and Start Menu if you want and also modify the transparency of the Start Menu.

Steps to change color of Start Menu, Taskbar and Action Center in Windows 10

1. First tap on the Action Center icon on the taskbar and go to All Settings.


2. Go to Personalization.


3. Next you will find an option Colors in the left panel.


4. The automatic selection of color is turned off by default. If you want to turn it off, then tap on the slider below “Automatically pick a color from my background” to turn it on.
