Yeah, if I set the default app mode to "dark", the the plugin works to force Rainmeter context menus to dark.

Not a fan of this dark mode in Windows, 90% of the apps I run don't obey it and it turns into a mess. They may get this right someday.

Yes... when I set Windows setting "Choose your default app mode" from Light to Dark (in Japanese Windows, "既定のアプリモードを選択します" from 白 to 黒), the plugin works!

Thanks, jsmorley and of course oZone!!

I have updated plugin.

Windows 10 build 10.0.18362 (update 1903) (maybe there was previous insider version) has changed one unnamed function, so it is possible to use dark mode ignoring system wide theme for apps.

Use option Force=1 together with DarkMode=1 to always use dark mode.

And again If there is some issues, reply here. I will try to fix it, but I won't promise anything.
(Working with undocumented methods is PIA).

Now I can use DarkContextMenu when Windows(1903) color mode is "White" with added "Force=1" option. Thanks a lot, oZone!
