That's a standard menu drawn by Windows. (A lot of the other ones are custom menus we draw entirely ourselves, but we use standard menus in places where we don't need any of our extra functionality.)

Windows doesn't currently provide a supported API to switch apps or windows into Dark Mode. There is an API, but it's undocumented and still changing, and regularly breaking things that try to reverse engineer it. Dark Mode is still a mess in Windows at the moment. (A mess that shouldn't exist if Microsoft hadn't already made a mess of the Visual Styles system!)

We are keeping an eye on this, and hoping Microsoft stabilise and publish the API, but it is not ready for use by third parties yet.
