How to Activate Dark Mode in Windows 10?

Dark mode is now more popular than ever for digital services. While users want to use dark mode on all kinds of devices, manufacturers are trying to bring dark mode to devices from every segment in line with these requests. In this direction, Microsoft has placed some settings in order to experience the dark mode in the desktop operating system.

With the 1809 version of Windows 10, users have had the dark mode feature on their operating systems for a while. When this feature is enabled, File Explorer switches completely to dark colors and the windows of the applications adapt to it.

In the color selection area at the top of the page, choose a color in dark gray tones. If you cannot see such a color, create it yourself from the section that says Custom color. With this option, your Windows theme will switch to a darker color, while other features such as window bars, Start and Control Panel will have dark mode.
