Here's mine:

No menu, no toolbar. Everything (command, scripts) is called either via a keyboard shortcut, or via the "List All Commands" window which acts almost perfectly as a command palette for me.

Not bad!

IMO the sorting arrows in the column headers are far too bright, I'll fix that...

@Nighted: Well, looking at the code I don't really understand how those arrows end up snow-white. I need to replicate your settings. Could you share your system color settings? Your dark theme?

------
PS & FYI: Apparently it's not possible anymore to customize the system colors in a civilized way like in earlier Windows. I did not know that. So, one has to go via registry:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Colors
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\Colors
Not sure yet which is which...

Wait, so does this mean the XY Dark Mode is a no go?

No, no. That was just a comment from the perspective of a Windows user.

I'm working on the Dark Mode right now... :maf: :cup:

Stay clear of 3D Color Changer 4, it messes things up no end. It has strange effects on programs, colours randomly change. It's not been updated since 2003 and clearly development has been abandoned. I reported bugs years ago, and got no response.

It's a total mess!!
Those people who think they know everything are a great annoyance to those of us who do.
