    Question How to restyle Open With dialoge for dark theme?



    I'm sure its common problem, but I can't seem to find solution anywhere on the Internet... This annoying white menu is one of the last "islands" of whiteness I can't eliminate on my Windows 10 TOTAL dark theme (I use custom modified BIB3).

    Is there any way to restyle this menu? And if not, maybe its possible to change it for some default Open With dialog (from Windows 7 days)?

    What I've found so far:

    Code:
    Computer\HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\Open With
    has value:
    Code:
    {09799AFB-AD67-11d1-ABCD-00C04FC30936}
    This GUID is assigned to "Open With Context Menu Handler". Maybe its possible to change it to custom Open With handler?

    I would like to know if there is a way also. There used to be an application that worked with old windows 10, that was like the Windows 7 open dialogue.

    Maybe you can recall the name of this program? I wonder if it's still around somewhere on the Internet...

    It crashes with newer windows. Here are the links. I think I even emailed the developer, but didnt get a reply.

    Well that sucks. It also seems that original author of that program didn't bother to publish it's source code, even after abandoning it. For now my solution is to just remove "open with" from context menu and add custom context menus for file types I frequently open with different apps, like I added "Open with Edge" for .html, while default is Firefox.
