Why is the Dropbox tray icon black on Windows 10?

Rsl
Level 3

Recently the Dropbox icon on my Windows 10 machine turned black, it was white before.

As you can see in the image it is barely visible (since I have transparent taskbar) - On a black taskbar it would not appear at all.

I have just spotted the same problem. A black icon doesn't work on a black task bar - looks ridiculous! Please change this back or give an option to have a black or white logo.

Thank you

What is the answer to this question?  How can we make the taskbar icon white, not black?
