Windows 10 includes a Dark Mode setting, also known as Dark Theme, that changes the colors used by Windows, and some apps are set to darker. While the dark mode was created so that Windows shows less light and therefore won’t disturb others who may be sleeping, many find that they prefer to use a darker theme all the time.

To activate Windows 10 Dark Mode, you need to go to the Colors settings screen. To do this, you can go to Settings> Personalization> Colors or type ” dark ” in the Start Menu search field, as shown below, and select ” Color settings “.

Once you are at the Color settings screen, scroll down until you see “ Choose your default app mode,” as shown in the image below.

To enable dark mode in Windows 10, select the “ Dark ” setting under “ Choose your default app mode ” and Windows 10 will instantly change the color scheme to a new dark mode theme, as shown below.

Now that Dark Mode is enabled, this same dark theme will be used in Windows and many of its apps.
