Customizing the appearance of Windows 10

Changing to Dark Mode

By default, Windows 10 displays most system windows and dialog boxes in Light mode, with black or darker colored text against a white background. Many users prefer the new Dark mode, which reverses that scheme, with white or lighter colored text against a black background.

Enable Dark Mode

  1. In Settings, choose Personalization, and then click Colors.

  2. In the Choose Your Default App Mode section, click to select Dark.

  3. To return to Light mode, click to select Light.
