MacOS got dark mode a few years ago in Mojave, allowing Mac users to apply a dark theme across apps. Android 10 got a systemwide dark mode setting last year, making it drop-dead easy to go dark in the latest version of Google's mobile OS. And iPhones and iPads got a dark theme in iOS 13 and iPadOS.
You can dim the lights in Windows 10 as well, if you want to conserve a bit of battery life or lessen the strain on your eyes, or if you just like how a darker color palette looks on Microsoft's OS. (Though it turns out shifting the colors on your screen may not be so critical to good sleep hygiene, after all.)
You can make dark mode the default look of the Windows 10 operating system, as well as for many Windows apps. Some older Windows apps such as Task Manager, however, won't adopt the change to dark.
If you want to apply dark mode across Windows 10 and its apps, here's how.
Here's how to apply a dark theme to Windows 10.
You may need to choose Custom from the Choose your color menu to see the dark mode choice.
If you want to apply a darker color palette across Windows 10 apps, here's how.
Again, you may need to choose Custom from the Choose your color menu to see the dark mode choice.
And, if you want to apply the dark theme broadly -- across Windows 10 and its apps -- you can select Dark from the Choose your color menu.
If an app doesn't adopt the dark theme after you've turned it on in Windows 10 settings, you may need to adjust that app's individual preference for how it applies the Windows default theme.
For example, In Mail's Personalization settings, tap Use my Windows mode. In Edge's Appearance settings, from the Theme menu, choose System default.
