Enable Night Mode in Windows 10 – Dark Theme

Share

Where is the Night Mode in Windows 10 was the first question I asked when I had to use my PC at night without lights. It is so frustrating to look at the display lights in the dark, that you rather prefer to shut down your PC and go to sleep than work.

But, work is work, and you have to do it on time. On smartphones and web browsers we have plugins and inbuilt night mode features that allow you to view your smartphone display without straining your eyes.

Even if you are using a web browser on your PC, you can install a plugin to get the night mode activated. But, what if you are working on your PC and not on a web browser? How to enable Night Mode in Windows 10?

Fortunately, Microsoft has taken care of this problem in the Windows 10 PCs and has pushed Night Mode aka dark theme in Windows Anniversary update.

That’s right. You should be running the latest Windows 10 with the latest Anniversary update installed to get the Night Mode enabled.
