    Taskbar and sidebar on Windows 7 suddenly changed to white color

    When I turned on my laptop running on Windows 7 yesterday, I found that both the taskbar and sidebar have changed to white color. How can I get them back to normal mode?

    As a first step, you should click on any empty space available on your desktop. Then, you should click on the ‘Personalize’ option visible on the screen. You should then click on ‘Windows Color and Appearance’ option. After that, you should simply press your fingers over ‘Open Classic Windows Properties’ item to view the properties of Windows 7. On doing so, you can view many options get displayed on the screen. You should locate ‘Color Scheme’ from that group of items. You should then choose ‘Windows Aero’ from the list given under ‘Color Scheme’. Finally, you should get back to the desktop and see whether the issue gets resolved or not.

    this is because of bug with windows "AERO" this for color schema of your windows.. If there's any problem with that it will change the color schema to non aero mode .. Mean that you will be getting non aero mode this's all because of the some applications that requires to run windows xp mode so that system will change color schema ... The best example for this is playing xp games on windows 7...
    To over come this issue try to reinstall the aero drivers again....

    dear friend,

    I would like to tell you about the graphics driver.

    If you see this problem is occurring randomly after every startup then you must update your graphics driver.

    Uninstall the old one & reinstall the updated version.

    Hope this will help you to solve this permanently.

    Also you can manually change the color of your taskbar.

    For that you have to follow these steps-

    Click on the Start button.

    Go to control panel.

    Select Appearance & Personalized option.

    Click on Windows color under Personalized option.

    Now set the color as your wish.

    Click on Save changes after choosing the color.

    You'll see the taskbar & sidebar color has been changed.
