A new week, a new Windows 10 build. This time around, build 17733 is the one that is doing the rounds. And it brings with it a dark mode for File Explorer that was announced all the way back in May.

Essentially, this is the final version of the design that the company had worked on most of the summer.

Redmond announced Windows 10 build 17733, noting what is pretty much the only new feature in this version of the preview. Unsurprisingly, as we are now getting close to the RTM version of Redstone 5, the next big update for the operating system.

In any case, we got the first word on this implementation in April this year.

Since then, the company has worked to refine the design with feedback from the Insiders, which it makes a special note of in the changelog.

Oh, and this is how it looks:

File Explorer Dark Mode

Animated goodness!

Overall, the design is quite nice, without being too spectacularly different as some may have preferred.

But more importantly, Windows 10 has a nicely done dark theme for File Explorer, which is undoubtedly one of the most used features of the operating system. Microsoft can always improve upon the design for both the light and dark modes, going forward.

Speaking of going forward, we seem to be almost done with the Redstone 5, and getting close to a final RTM version of this update.

Active development has now shifted on the next version of Windows 10, codenamed 19H1.
