    Hey Everyone,

    I am trying to figure something out on my wife's computer. She wanted the dark theme for Win 10 File Explorer before this was added to the 1809 updated. She used something like winblinds (unsure of exact program) to change the look. She then later uninstalled it and anything else to change the theme so I am unable to restore settings.

    When I enable Dark mode now, if I right-click the main menu is still light even though dark mode is no but also the text is also white due to the dark mode until you highlight it. Similar to the File Explorer, when dark mode is enabled the list of her files are dark but the boarder/header with the file, on is light though dark mode is enabled. Also her ribbon is missing it just has that organize, Open, Give access to and New Folder options. I cannot find a way to return it back to default. Like mine. Her computer has been up and this has been done a long while ago like a year or more... before 1809 update so I'd rather find a way to return these settings to factory rather than attempt at reloading the computer to factory.

    I have to enable dark mode back on her computer to show some of the settings I have written here but I don't have access to it at the moment but if needed, I can provide. Also any help here is appreciated.

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

    following ALL of the above steps did nothing. explorer.exe still broken.

    additional steps taken:

    1x system refresh, explorer still dead

    1x clean boot, explorer still dead

    3x sfc /scannow, rebooted in between, explorer still dead

    1x restore point, all programs uninstalled, explorer worked for 4 hours, then died.

    1x reset, explorer still never opened

    1x reverted back to 8.1, explorer woked, autoupdated to 10, explorer died

    1x COMPLETE WIPE, reinstalled 8.1, autoupdated to 10, explorer died.

    wiping again. reeinstalling 8.1. turning off updates for good.
