It’s probably just me, but I find the ‘Windows 10 Slate Grey’ scheme lovely, but also that I get confused as which tab is active (multiple modules open).  Just wondering if anyone else has this ‘problem’?



c.f., with ‘Windows 10 Dark‘ – as an example - I can more easily spot that is the active tab (it is, in both snapshots).  Whereas …


… with ‘Windows 10 Slate Grey’, to me it seems as though is the active tab – probably because of the darker background on  The active tab in the first image has a lighter back-colour, whereas it’s darker in the other; so I see the lighter background in the second as being active perhaps? I don’t know.



So, curious to know whether it’s just me; from a UX/UI point of view really.

Hi Peet,

I am not a UI designer and I have not designed the styles myself.  However, with the Windows 10 Slate gray, you can easily see which tab is active, thanks to the distinctive line at the top of the active tab.
