Thanks for the reply. I’m on a mere toy operating system, namely macOS 😉
(I’m being sarcastic, BTW, I know that under the hood macOS is very Unix
(or should I say FreeBSD) in flavour).

I’ll have a search on GTK matters and see what I can find...

This is not adjustable in Geany at all, as it's everything GTK around,
you will have to set an appropriate GTK theme for this. You usually do
this in your Window Manager (Xfce, Gnome, whatever you use), there must
be some settings for "Appereance" or similar.

It is possible to install additional themes for that, though. On Fedora
for example you can do a "dnf search greybird" to find a cool dark
theme which could probably please you.

It of course is possible to adjust settings in a configuration file
named gtkrc, but thats probably getting a bit too complicated - didn't
do that myself ever.
