    Windows 10 File Explorer Appearance Question


    Hello, I have the newbiest question. I could not find a specific solution with internet searches.

    My question is, when I activated Windows Dark Mode, everything changed except the bottom border of File Explorer.

    Is there a way to make File Explorer totally dark? (See arrow in photo)

    I am using Classic Shell if it matters.

    Thanks for any help ahead of time!

    I thinks its safe to assume that it most likely has something to do with Classic Shell because this doesn't happen with file explorer normally, but who knows, this is what some folders look like for me with regular file explorer in dark mode ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    I was afraid of that. Not getting rid of Classic Shell because 'Tiles' enrage me.

    Anyways, Thank You so Much mTaylor0248603 for confirming my fears!!!

    If it were to do with Classic Shell, note that there are 3 aspects to Classic/Open Shell:
    - the start menu
    - explorer
    - IE

    You can change what is installed using the installer: (yes, this one's actually Open Shell)

    There is also an option for CS's status bar to appear or not.
