Mp3tag Version: 2.84

I guess that probably most of the users have the Mp3tag set to a full size of the screen. And that their main window, the list of files, is white [which comes from the settings of the OS]

And I also guess that those who happen to have a big screen, have the same problem as mine: too much bright light in the middle of the night. You may be finishing some audio / tagging work and want to go to sleep- but instead of slowing your brain down with a dark environment, you are sitting in front of a mostly white screen. Or even worse: you cannot fall to sleep, so you get up to turn on the computer to play something [in hopes that maybe it will put you down to sleep]; and then you enter the OS and then Mp3tag and then you end up with an effect like in the beginning of that scene: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wRRNzK58ttw. For me it is simply a pain to my eyes, even with my screen set to ECO [dimmed] settings- I have to quickly manually switch my Mp3tag from my default fullscreen mode to a windowed one and make it [the whole Mp3tag] much smaller [so that I would mostly see my black wallpaper but still have access to Filter Box or whatever]

And I know I have a sleeping disorder but I also had my eyes checked recently- so it not theirs fault

So I would like to request a button for the night mode. It could simply change automatically all the whites to greys. Although this could potentially render some elements invisible / indistinguishable [depending on the rest on the settings of a given OS]. So maybe a user should have a choice to what exact color the whites should be changed. And if not all of the whites, then at least the white in the main window [the background for list of files]

And here is an example of such simplistic version: http://www.dreamviews.com/forum.php. This [dreams driven] site has a simple switch at its top than changes the "main" white to grey, very handy for the nightly readers. And yes, I know that webpages run on HTML / PHP / CSS and Mp3tag does not, but the basic principal is the same- to start displaying a grey in the main / biggest area of the software; and to be as easily able to go back

My graphics adapter comes with a control panel that allows me so set contrast and brightness and save the settings and load them back again...
I see the task in that application.
