    background color in file explorer


    OS = Win 10. In my Settings>Color, I set the color to dark. All information in File Explorer comes up with a black background. Is there a way I can get a white background in File Explorer, while keeping a black background for the main program information box that comes up when I click the Windows icon at lower left?

    :)

    Close all open windows, restart the computer once and then login to the computer to check if that helps.

  4. background color in file explorer

    Folder Background colors

    Hi Kevin,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    I completely understand the way you feel at the moment. You may try the below suggested steps to change the look of the File explorer.

    Are the computers connected to any Domain Network?

    Kevin, you can only change the background color of File Explorer to black and the only way to do this is to go to
    Settings > Personalization > Colors > Under
    Choose your default app mode, choose Dark. Once you change this setting, you will experience the entire user interface of File Explorer, Context menu, Save and open dialog, Settings application with the blackish color.

    If you want to change the background of Outlook, then I suggest you to refer
    Change the look and feel of Office with themes
    and check if this helps.

    Hope it helps.
