How to Enable Dark Mode in Windows 10

Welcome to the Today’s Tech Log, over some of the new features that were incorporated in Windows 10 after the anniversary update. In today’s article, we are going to Enable Dark Mode in Windows 10.

I thought I’d show you a new feature that I personally find really cool. And that’s the option to switch between a light and dark app theme directly in the all settings panel.

Now, this was something that was possible in previous builds of Windows 10. But you can only do it by making modifications in your system registry. So it wasn’t really convenient, especially for the average user.

In the anniversary update, however, switching between the default light theme. And the previously hidden dark theme is simply a matter of a few clicks.

By the way, if you still haven’t installed the Windows 10 anniversary update and you’d like to do it before it becomes available for your system through regular system updates you can check out here.

Have in mind that the dark mode will only affect apps that are capable of running it. For some apps, the dark mode can only be activated from inside their own settings. For example Edge browser.

But here’s some Screenshots of apps running in the dark mode just so you can see what it actually looks like.

Note: Some Element of the OS (Operating System) Do Not Support Dark Mode. For Eg: The File Explorer and The Old Control Panel 

So the dark mode is something that you might want to use in very low light environments. Where a bright white theme may be hard in your eyes. On the other hand, it’s not really convenient. When you’re in a room that has a lot of light or outdoors. Especially if you have a glossy screen unless you want to use your screen as a mirror.

But that would be all for this time. Be sure to stick around for more article updates on new features in the windows 10th-anniversary update. Next time we’re going to take a look at the new features.
