for those still looking around for this on windows that respects the OS theme (dark/light), Notepad++ has a PR out there for doing it. some of which uses some "undocumented" winapi's but it's a start. (maybe could be adapted for our ide.... :) )

and a different effort goes with a plugin approach to "force" the theme,

Mid 2022 and dark theme option on windows not avaiable yet.

A simple google search shows that there is demand for this.

How long further will us windows users be hostages to Lazarus light theme?

How about any hack or "tricking" the IDE to work dark themed?

Any suggestions?

Still a valid suggestion in my book...
