"If you have switched to Windows 10 then you have disabled curtains.
Are you unable to change the accent colour using either curtains or the default OS screens for that?
It could be you have been reset to not applying colour to the taskbar / start menu in which case this can be changed from the settings page in Curtains or the OS personalisation screen.
Which style are you using that needs black text on the start menu as it may well be the style needs tweaking."
I have found the setting that stopped my taskbar and start menu from reverting to the Win10 color scheme. I don't know how it happened because I hadn't changed anything.
I also have Start 10 installed and I'm using the Modern start menu. When I switch to a Win10 start menu with Start 10, my start menu text changes colors but the start menus when using any light Curtains Style are grey, not the color of the taskbar. When using the Win7 start menu in Start 10, the start menu text on the left side changes colors but the right side always has white text. When using the Modern start menu, my text stays white no matter what Curtains style I apply.
Stay safe, everyone!
I wonder why on the Wincustomize home page and comment section for skins I am SamEVO but here I'm still MadDeez. Hmmm.
