Theme demo

The Theme extension is a way to define the look of the Xplorer. Xplorer comes with a few default themes (which are light, dark, light+, and dark+), but you can also create your own, which is a great way to personalize your Xplorer and is documented in this guide.

How do I change between themes?

You can switch between themes by opening settings and on the Preference page, you can see a dropdown menu with the available themes under App Theme section.
