Turn on dark mode for Windows 10 apps

If you want to apply a darker color palette across Windows 10 apps, here’s how.

1. From the Start menu again, open Settings.

2. Tap Personalization, and then over on the left tap Colors.

3. Under the label Choose your default app mode, turn on the Dark button.

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.

Turn on dark mode in individual Windows 10 apps

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.

1. Head to where the app keeps its appearance settings.

In the Mail app, for example, tap the Settings gear in the bottom left corner and then tap Personalization over on the right. In the new Edge browser, tap the the three-dot menu to the right of the menu bar, tap Settings, and then tap Appearance.

2. Now, check that the app’s appearance preference is set to adopt the Windows 10 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.
