I enabled dark mode in Settings > Personalization > Colors
And it works as I would expect for most OS things.
But for some reason, File Explorer gloriously refuses to turn black. It's as white as ever, even after reboot etc.
I can't find anything on Google about this, so that's why I am posting here. I thought it might somehow be weirdly NUC specific.... but that sounds weird as well
Anyone else have dark mode enabled but File Explorer refusing to play ball?
And, I am willing to wager that you are running 1809.
If so, look here: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10-start-win_general/windows-10-1809-dark-... Windows 10 1809 Dark mode - Microsoft Community
There appear to be a few "minor" issues with 1809. Aside from deleting users files, there are several hundred other bugs, such that Microsoft withdrew 1809 only a couple of days after they posted it. That was in early October. Now, approaching mid-November, the re-release has not happened.
