Fix Start, Taskbar And Action Center Option Grayed Out In Settings
Windows 10 uses black for Start, taskbar, and action centre as default settings. That is, by default, the current accent color is not applied to Start, taskbar, and Action Center.
Users who want other colors 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 that Start, taskbar, and action center option is greyed out happens when you misconfigure Windows mode. Specifically, when you select Light Windows mode, the option will turn grey.
