Will come next year. Beginning of next year. :)
Tuesday? :mrgreen:

Very good idea. With scripting support we could build complete theme loaders.

Wooho! Look forward to it. :)
And forgot to mention another upside to this. I can have two settings for day and night time and switch between these modes effortlessly.

No scroll bars would be a welcome option. As long as I can still scroll with a mouse, I don't need to see the bars. They just take up real estate. Removing then all (horizontal or vertical) would be great - all or nothing option. Though I'm personally most interested in removing the list pane scroll bars.

We just need to make sure that Shift+Mouse-wheel works everywhere to scroll horizontally.

For instance, it doesn't work on inputselect() windows.

If optionally hiding the scrollbars could actually be a thing, this might be a good opportunity to also implement an "auto scroll" feature.

How it works is that dragging the middle-mouse button (currently unused), can act as if you grabbed the scroll bar and dragged. You don't have to have the scrollbar visible, yet get the same functionality.

It could even work like the horizontal bar by dragging across.

I would not bet on hiding the scrollbars becoming a feature. I find it too weird. I still have hopes to find a way to color those controls... haven't given up yet.

Some of the included toolbar icons are still hard to see when Dark Mode is on. For example: Ghost Filter (when enabled), Hide Protected Operating System Files (when enabled), Toggle Instant Color Filter (the handle of the brush), etc.

Ok, looks like I gotta do something about that...

PS: I tried 4: ghostdark,hideosdark,icfdark,paperdark ... but I did not like the look of them apart from icfdark. So in the next version you'll see a better Toggle Instant Color Filter, that's it for now.

This is what the tabs in Info Panel look like for me in Dark Mode:

Are you using the TabIPVisualStyle tweak? (= you set it to anything but 3?)

Are you using Windows in classic mode? (No themes?)

I use
TabIPVisualStyle=0

And Windows 10 is in the normal/default mode.

I just found the way to repro it. Good bug, thanks!
