Dark mode on Windows File Explorer is coming


There is a feature in Windows that allow you to switch into dark mode. Even though it’s just black colored, a dark theme has its own importance in people’s digital lives. YouTube also added a dark theme mode last year.  In Windows, It will change most system apps, third-party apps, and few system elements into the darker theme which is easier on eyes or on your preference, but unfortunately, when the dark mode is enabled, it does not apply to File Explorer.

This isn’t for the lightweight UWP version, It’s the full, fat, Win32 File Explorer. With latest Redstone 5 build, the File Explorer will join the dark side soon. It’s not fully enabled in that branch and Microsoft is still working on this feature internally and so hopefully this would not be a problem for much longer.

Image2Although screenshot above looks promising, it is an early version of the dark mode in File Explorer and it’ll likely change before it’s finalized. It’s not 100% sure if Microsoft is planning to issue dark mode in File Explorer with Redstone 5, or it could be next year the earliest. But on the Brightside, we know it’s coming!
