Folder listing highlight obscures folder name
« on: 2021-10-29 14:41:06 »
I have a new computer and started using dark themes everywhere, Windows 10 is configured as such and I changed the folder listing background in T+ to be black. However, when I highlight a folder, the name disappears, because it turns from a default light blue to an almost black dark blue, see attached. I cannot find an option in T+ or Windows to change that. Can anyone help? Ideally, I want to change the text color when highlighted to be white or retain the light blue.

How did you change the colors from their defaults?

Either way, the color options that I'm aware of are:

Window | Theme

Options | Customize | Colors (also note the option in the bottom left corner of this dialog)

Options | Preferences | Disks & Folders | Folder Tree Options | Use Vista/Win7 tree appearance   (unsure if this makes a difference)

Thanks Daan,

I changed the background to black using the Options-Customize-Colors option
The Windows theme makes no difference.
The last option you list is what caused it. Unchecking the Use Vista/Win7 option fixed it, now it looks good.

Thanks!

Good to hear that it could be solved!

As for your screenshot, these must be exciting times for a Nikonian! (yesterday's Z9 announcement + Z lens roadmap)  :-)

Nice releases, indeed! The Z9 is not something I can use for night photography, but the technology will hopefully trickle down. And the new lenses are great, too! :)
