    Hi,
    Dark theme messed up
    White file/ folder listing black font and white background = okay can go with that
    Selections are black can't see file name anymore


    Windows 10 Version 1809. Right click unusable in dark mode.
    Text changes to white, but Menu windows are still white.
    Light mode OK.
    Does anyone else have this problem, or is it just me?

    Having said that, System Protection wasn't turned off on any of the machines I've upgraded.
    - wonder why it's an inconsistent experience? Is an in-place upgrade repair install different in this respect?
    ('typical' was too strong a word on my part in retrospect).

    Clean installed 1809 which took between 10-15 minutes.

    I consistently see System Restore is still on after an in-place update (in 1809 as in previous versions). Apparently letting Windows Update do it for you has been observed to turn it off...

    From what I know so far, this seems to only apply to computers that are updated via Windows Update.
    If you use the Windows 10 Update Tool, then it doesn't turn it off.

    On one machine(my main one) after clean up disk space,
    I had a 0 byte folder left over in Windows.old so couldn't get rid of it the normal way.

    I tried using cmd
    Example:
    Code:
    C:\WINDOWS\system32>cd c:\
    c:\>dir /a /x /p
     Volume in drive C is Windows M.2
     Volume Serial Number is A000-AD45
     Directory of c:\

    Didn't work either as Windows.old had no tilde

    So for the heck of it I tried adding a txt file, then tried deleting the folder.
    And it worked!

    An admin cmd worked for me with the following commands.

    cd c:/
    rd windows.old /s

    reply y to the prompt.

    1809


    2 computers updated to 1809 through WU it took a few hours but OK, both of them with explorer dark theme as default. Don't know yet if I am going to like it.

    After 10 hours of updating, it is now here! Win10 1809 is now on 5/6 of the computers, including my 330-15IKB. Happy Birthday to me also means its the 1809 Anniversary Update Take 2!
