    Windows Dark Theme Broke


    I have light sensitive eyes, and spend a lot of time at my PC monitor, as was very happy when I was able to change Windows Explorer to an all dark theme/background (several months ago).
    So I'm watching TV / surfing the net, when out of the corner of my eye, I see something flash on my monitor, at first glance everything looked the same. But then I noticed that file explorer had only part of its dark theme, but the address bar, and some of the area is a bright washed-out white, its so bad you can't even read anything on the address bar, or a file or folder that is selected.


    1. I have no Windows restore points to try to go back to.
    2. I have changed the settings / colors from Light to Dark several times.
    3. Restarted Windows a couple of times.
    4. Loaded older/previous themes I have saved, that had good working Explorer dark setting / colors.


    But its like something broke in File Explorer, no matter what I do, I'm stuck with this, any ideas would be appreciated! ! !

    :)

    Dark Theme

    Hello again,

    I've repaired Office 365, I've had a look at the registry but made no change to it as it was already set to the dark theme.

    Are you suggesting that reinstalling Office 365 will do the trick ?

    Regards

    Peter.

    Dark Theme

    Hello,

    I've tried a few things suggested, like repairing Office and the problem still persists. Do you have any other ideas ?

    The online version of Outlook works fine as far as the dark theme goes.



    Regards

    Peter.
