    Does anybody know how to change the outline color of a tab in QTTabBar? I'm attempting to use QTTabBar with the Windows File Explorer Dark theme (Windows version 1809, build 17763.134), but I feel that the white outlines are a little harsh (I would prefer a bit of a darker gray).

    Does anybody know how to change the tab outline color? I can't seem to find it under "Appearance."

    Hi, I'm guessing this may be relevant- I've not tried it... yet.. and don't really understand it either.

    There's quite a variety of skins,and Help for authors. I'd be interested in anything you learn by playing with it.

    If you use the Filter you can select Tab bar only.

    Unfortunately it seems QTTabBar is causing momentary freezes. Once every three minutes, the svchost process governing "RPC Endpoint Mapper" and "Remote Procedure Call (RPC)" will use up the entirety of a core for a thread with the start address "sechost.dll!StartServiceW+0x60" and the entire computer will 'lag' for about a second or two.

    Eventually I figured out that it was only happening when the explorer.exe process was running (whether or not the file explorer was open). I uninstalled QTTabBar using the 1038 setup file and sure enough, that particular svchost.exe process stopped having those CPU usage spikes.

    I tried disabling many features in QTTabBar to see if it would make the CPU usage spikes disappear, but nothing seemed to help.

    If you use QTTabBar, you should see if you're having the same problem. The svchost.exe process, for me at least, always had the lowest value PID among the other svchost.exe processes, so that should make it easy to spot if you're using Process Hacker or Process Explorer. If you look at CPU usage of threads, you might just see the behavior I'm seeing.

    I used a 3rd party solution but after I bought my 4K monitor and now have a mixed pair of 1080p & 4K the software has a real problem, where it shows part only in 4K scaling and other parts in 1080p scaling.
    Yes the window mixed scales.

    The program is called Clover and uses a Chromium backend that leaves File Explorer looking like File Explorer(too many alternatives make look like something from Windows 3.0) just with tabbed windows, basically each instance holds the same window size putting a tab on the window chrome, which has the name of the folder that it has opened, also you can add bookmarks(that's all Quick Access is too), use keyboard shortcuts, and the like.

    The problem for me still exists as the last update was in July 2018

    This is actually exactly what I want from Microsoft.
    Maybe now they are using a Chromium Edge, they can get tabs for FE to work the same?

    I use QtTabBar. It had an update last year to support dark explorer. http://qttabbar.wikidot.com/
    Clover works great if you just want Tabbed Explorer.

    QTTabBar is indispensable as an integrated Explorer shell.

    The 1040 update makes certain elements blend better with the default Dark Explorer...

    I find the Ribbon hideous, I suggest also using Old/New Explorer for a more refined look.
