I have noticed that my monitor task bar looks brighter than usual. I haven't changed any settings that I know of.

Can someone advise please how to reset it. Thank you

Problem solved.

I found a thread on Google on the subject of 'white glow' on the task bar.

To fix it I done the following:

Right click on desktop Click on 'Personalise' Click on 'Window Colour' icon at the bottom Uncheck 'Enable Transparency' Click on 'Save' and close.

Repeat the above but 'Check' the 'Enable Transparency' box and the 'Save' and close.

The task bar is now back to normal without that horrible white glow.

It worked for me.

This thread is now locked and can not be replied to.
