How to change the taskbar colour in Windows 10?

Windows 10 ever since its launch has totally revamped the way Windows functioned and even perceived. It’s a much more modern looking and functioning operating system than its predecessors.

The OS has a lot of optimisations and features hidden under the hood that optimises user experience almost regardless of the hardware configuration of the machine you run it on. There are also versions such as Windows 10 S that are built from the ground up to run on devices that aren’t exactly super powerful by modern standards. 

Windows 10 has a host of customisation features that keep on getting better with every update rolling out. You can even customise colours for program windows, start menu, the taskbar and so on.
