The Theme extension is a way to define the look of the Xplorer. Xplorer comes with a few default themes (which are
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.
