    Windows Dark Theme Broke

    I have light sensitive eyes, and spend a lot of time at my PC monitor, as was very happy when I was able to change Windows Explorer to an all dark theme/background (several months ago).
    So I'm watching TV / surfing the net, when out of the corner of my eye, I see something flash on my monitor, at first glance everything looked the same. But then I noticed that file explorer had only part of its dark theme, but the address bar, and some of the area is a bright washed-out white, its so bad you can't even read anything on the address bar, or a file or folder that is selected.

    1. I have no Windows restore points to try to go back to.
    2. I have changed the settings / colors from Light to Dark several times.
    3. Restarted Windows a couple of times.
    4. Loaded older/previous themes I have saved, that had good working Explorer dark setting / colors.

    But its like something broke in File Explorer, no matter what I do, I'm stuck with this, any ideas would be appreciated! ! !

    Never mind I fixed it, man this OS sure has become buggy, something is breaking, or not working correctly every time I turn around, or a windows update is wrecking havoc.

    That 'Aero-Lite' theme doesn't play nicely with Dark Explorer!
