Highlighting makes it difficult to discern just which files are, highlighted.

When you highlight a selection of files, it's often difficult (for me) to discern just what is or is not highlighted.

1. is dav331 highlighted or not. (mouse is resting on the particular file)
2. i've moved the mouse away & now it becomes more apparent. but before it wasn't.
3. from this shot, is dav226 highlighted or not? (not clear to me. only my hairdresser knows for sure ;-).)

And Everything, in comparison. Very clear, regardless of mouse positioning...

no (Windows) "Aero" or anything like that, in case that matters

1. dav332 is very clearly not highlighted
2. Same as 1
3. dav226 is very clearly not highlighted

Is your contrast out of whack on your display?

I suppose you mean dav33121. No that is not highlighted.
But, dav331 is. And to me that is not clear.

> 2. Same as 1

With the mouse moved away, I'll agree with that.

> 3. dav226 is very clearly not highlighted

Oh, but it most certainly is.
The same sets of files are highlighted in 1, 2, & 3.

> Is your contrast out of whack on your display?

Nope.

1. Yes, I mistyped. I thought dav331 was not highlighted! Are you for real that it actually is highlighted??
2. I know understand
3. wow

Ok yes. That absolutely needs to be fixed. You are on the latest version? Stock Windows 10 theme? If so, that is horrible and I agree with your assessment
