Summary: Sometimes, we may find that the Start, taskbar, and action centre is greyed out, and we cannot turn it on. This article will show you how to turn on the greyed-out Start, taskbar, and action centre.

Windows 10 uses black for Start, taskbar, and action centre as default settings. That is, by default, the current accent colour is not applied to Start, taskbar, and Action Center.

Users who want other colours on Start, Action Center, and taskbar can move to the Settings> Personalize > Colors page, and then open the Start, taskbar, and Action Center options.

However, many users encounter a problem that Start, taskbar, and action centre option is dimmed and cannot be opened.

Fortunately, it is not hard to fix this issue. This problem happens when you misconfigure Windows mode. Specifically, when you select  Light Windows mode, the option will turn grey.

Enable Grayed Out Start, Taskbar And Action Center Option

Solution 1

Step 1: Type Settings in the search box to open it and then move to Personalization > Colors page.

Step 2: Scroll down the Colors page. Then select the Custom or Dark option from the “Choose your colour” list. After that, choose your default Windows mode to Dark, which is essential. And then choose your default app mode to Dark or light, which does not matter.

After doing the above steps, the Start, taskbar, and action centre option will be available.

Solution 2

As mentioned earlier, the option is not available when you apply Windows Light mode or theme. You can choose dark Windows mode or set a normal Windows theme to make this option available.

Step 1: Open Settings and move to Personalization > Themes page.

Step 2: Scroll down the page, and you will see the installed themes. Then click on the Windows theme to apply it.

Step 3: Go to Personalization > Colors page to see the available Start, taskbar, and action centre option.
