I want and love to use the Night Sky contrast color theme...I have changed the other colors to red. Totally Slick,

,,,,but why is File Explorer is Purple ? LOL

I do not see any purple in the edit mode. I want the purple to be black.

I am using Startisback too....but it shouldn't effect the theme ?

any suggestions ?

While in High Contrast Mode, paste explorer shell:::{ED834ED6-4B5A-4bfe-8F11-A626DCB6A921} -Microsoft.Personalization\pageColorization into a Run box,
it should give you 2 extra options: Active Window Title and Inactive Window Title.

Oops! You have to be in High Contrast Mode when running the command. Sorry, I've edited my original post!

Furthermore:
Depending on which Explorer mode you are running via SAB, it may still be buggered up!
The W11 Explorer (SDK) is stupid!

@Bender
Working with your chosen colors, via the aforementioned Color and Appearance applet, you can get it pretty close...
(there are, however, some elements that just won't cooperate.)
