Something seems wrong with the alternate row color of the "Background Jobs" window:
Thanks!

Can more space be added for these strings, or the translation itself must be revised?
Ah, a side effect of the checkbox revolution, thanks!

Coming back on those scrollbars...

It seems there is a possibility to paint them dark as they are on Windows Explorer, but that'll work only for Windows 10 1809 and later:

Check this.

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.
please don't forget these ones mentioned previously (i.e. ghostdark, hideosdark, paperdark) :whistle:

I gave it a short try but it was not easy. Back burner...

Looked at it again. It's simply too undocumented. We have to wait.

Wouldn't it be cool if the Dark mode toolbar button's menu had options to choose darkness level and text contrast instead of irrelevant and view options?
Most people probably already keep the Views button on toolbar.

Levels are hard to do in a menu. Clumsy...

Yeah I thought so, but asked anyway on the off chance that you had some magic up your sleeve :whistle:

Anyway, at least add a link to Configuration > Colors and Styles > Highlights & Dark Mode if possible.

Thank you for the Dark mode, my eyes say thank you.

Are there any plan to make the scroll bar black in dark modes too and have to menu bar (File, Edit, View...) also Dark ?

Cheers

Generally yes. But I'm still waiting if MS offers something usable. When my patience has run out I will write my own scrollbar. Menubar is harder though.
