Hello! When using Teams in Dark Mode I notice that the list of channels in a Team is still shown in Light Mode and the text colour is so light it is almost unreadable. Has anyone else noticed this? Can it be changed? TIA! EDIT: I am using New Teams.

    Solution:

    Try clearing Teams client cache file. Searching for dark mode on your pc and open colour settings. And change all options to Dark Mode. Then try changing Teams to 'Follow operating system' instead of Dark Mode
