  1. File Explorer - Dark theme looks weird


    When I change my "Default App Mode" in personalisation settings, File Explorer doesn't look like it should: File Explorer - Dark theme looks weird 2c40f384-e86c-4b64-b9ff-65ba88b8c4b7?upload=true.png


    I seem to remember having a program at one point that changed how file explorer looked (Classic Shell) but I've uninstalled it. I've looked through my list of programs and nothing jumps out at me as something that might be editing the look of File Explorer.


    Interestingly, dark theme File Explorer looks fine for a new user on the same computer.

    Any ideas on how to fix this?

    :)

  2. Dark Theme for File Explorer.

    I waited exactly 9 years since Windows 7 released for Dark Theme to be used on the File Explorer and i feel hyped about Dark Theme can be used when you update your windows to version 1803 few weeks ago when i read it on article. My friend already got
    their File Explorer themed black, and i already updated it to version 1803 as they say it will works. But why my file explorer theme is still white even though its on version 1803 and already changed the theme to dark? Thank you.

  3. File explorer dark theme not applying properly

    Since the implementation of Dark theme, I've been a bizarre white tool bar, it originates from the white theme but apparently it doesn't change when I apply the dark theme.
    You can see what I mean here.

    An interesting remark I have to make is that when launching File Explorer shortly after signing in from a reboot, the File Explorer dark theme is applied correctly.

    I have tried from uninstalling applications to testing in safe mode, and even that was futile, as the behaviour was the same.

    I'm at the end of my rope, your help would be appreciated.

    Note: The dark theme is also applied properly when launching file explorer through shell.

    File explorer in dark theme gone!

    There was an option for choosing dark mode. I followed both suggestion above to the letter. But it did not fix the problem. Only Explorer is white. Which was the behavior before 1809.
