  1. Dark Mode

    I have just updated to Windows 10 Version 1809.

    Right click is unusable in dark mode. The text changes to white, but Menu windows are still white.

    This is both on the desktop and in File Explorer

    "Next time you’re staying up till three in the morning mindlessly watching YouTube videos, why not give your eyes a rest and turn the lights out? As discovered by, YouTube now a secret dark mode that’s easy to activate. Here’s how you do it:

    • Make sure you have the most recent version of Google Chrome (that’s version 57 onwards)
    • Open up the developer window by hitting Ctrl + Shift + I on Windows, or Option + Command + I on Mac
    • Select the “console” tab
    • Paste in the following text: document.cookie="VISITOR_INFO1_LIVE=fPQ4jCL6EiE" and hit enter
    • Close the developer window, refresh your browser, and the dark mode toggle is available in the main settings menu in the top right."
    "This feature hasn’t yet been officially announced, but it’s part of a number of changes YouTube is testing for the website’s design."

    File Explorer Dark Mode

    Hi AlvinMorris2,

    The Dark mode will change some of your device settings and default apps theme color to black. Thus, leaving some settings on its original color and appearance. I personally set my desktop color to Dark Mode and it also did not change the
    File Explorer to black. See image below:
