And since File Explorer just came out with an optional Dark Theme, I thought it's the right time to have that here too. So, XYplorer Dark Theme is coming... :)

This is probably the most exciting new feature from the last months. When working on PC 10+hours / day, you quickly feel that dark themes are very welcomed.

Thanks for looking into this!

Very.

Is this made only on win10 hi contrast or can I reach the same at 8.1-based machines, regular themes?

So is this a theme then or is this just you adjusting your Windows settings? Bit confused.

But with the dark OS theme, you can get a pretty decent looking dark theme going:

How did you achieve this look? Is it an actual screen shot or photoshop?

It's an actual screenshot. I'm using Windows 8.1 with the Penumbra custom theme. Then it's just the list and tree background colors changed to match the theme.

But as I said, you need a dark OS theme to get a good looking dark XY look. It would still be nice to be able to 'dark theme' XY independent of the the OS.
