What is this 'glow' that changes colors in my Taskbar?

Post by FuLl » Sun Jul 15, 2018 1:00 am

I notice sometimes there appears a white or blue glow-like coloring on my taskbar buttons. See attached screenshot.

Not sure what they all refer to- for whatever reason it's not obvious to me. Seems I can have multiple 'file-roller' instances with 1 idle & the other decompressing & yet anothewr window in the background & the colors don't seem to reflect their individual statuses.

Could someone who knows better than I kindly explain?


-Thanks

The "glow" is desktop theme dependent different desktop themes use colors to show active/inactive or background programs/apps.
