How to enable dark mode in Windows 10

Windows 10 has one native dark mode, which can be useful in some cases. For example, maybe you use your computer in low light conditions. If you use the dark tones of the interface, your eyes will not tire as quickly. On the other hand, many users like to turn on dark mode for purely aesthetic reasons. Whatever your case, below are the steps you need to take to correctly set up dark mode in Windows 10.

First go to the system settings. There is a shortcut in the start menu.

There’s also a hybrid dark mode that you can customize to your liking. From the same drop-down menu where you selected Dark, click the option Custom.

When this feature is enabled, you can choose which mode you want to use for Windows 10 interface elements like the taskbar and context menus, as well as for other applications. The transparency effects can also be turned off using the Transparency Effects option.

If you want to customize your computer as much as possible, you can find other relevant settings just below the Dark Mode parameters. These include choosing the highlight color or changing the color scheme based on the background image.
