    How to change search bar color?

    Ever since the most recent update a few days ago (Version 1903, OS Build 18362.418) my search bar for 'Cortana' has gone white! It is very irritating and I want it to go back to dark grey. If I change the Windows or App Modes in 'Colors Setting' it makes everything else dark mode too, like file explorer, etc. Only days ago I had the 'light' color mode on with a black search bar. What happened? Did anyone else have this problem recently? See screenshots below:

    I want the "white" light mode of the left picture with the dark search bar of the right photo.

    Hi, just FYI: Please note things have changed. These tutorials do not apply from 1903...

    I do not use the dark theme, and that search bar is 'whitish'.
