Question

Application Bar Changing Background Color When Machine Unlocked

We have a Robotics solution that utilizes an Application Bar. Recently, we have a reported instance of the background color (of the Appbar) changing when the user locks/unlocks their machine. Investigating has revealed the User has the Background color of the machine set to black, but the appbar issue is a recent issue. The Appbar is set to the color: "Control", but when the machine is locked/unlocked it will change to black.

Screenshots attached.

Runtime log has not produced anything out of the ordinary

We noticed changing the background color of the machine to a different color and then switch it back to black will change the Appbar back to "Control" color. I'm thinking it might be a machine specific setting but unsure on the actual root cause.

Anyone have any insight?

Thanks in advance.

The Control color is based on the theme of the user has set for Windows. If you want the background always to be the same color, set it to an actual color such as White.
