I think the Raspbian desktop is built on LXDE (though called PIXEL) so you may have more luck on their forum https://forum.lxde.org than here but basically you will have to change the theme along the lines of https://wiki.lxde.org/en/LXPanel_Theming

Sorry to say I've never tried this in real life - just had to undo a colleagues mess :lol: :evil: :lol:

The latest release of Simon Longs Desktop Environment is called "Raspberry Pi Desktop", Pixel naming was retired well over a year ago.

:oops:

A quick look through the code shows the bar colour as #edeceb and that looks grey on my screen based on https://www.color-hex.com/color/edeceb (then again I do have a colour profiled monitor for photo work). I could also be talking out of my botty as this is the first time I've seen that code :lol: :D :lol:

Maybe a change and recompile with this set to https://www.color-hex.com/color/e1dfde may help - but would this not get replaced with the next update unless the override is in place?
