Bright screens in low-light environments can create eye strain and make notes difficult to read. In this video, learn how to switch to Dark Mode to alleviate this issue.
- Staring at a bright screen all day can cause eye strain and make readability difficult. If you do a lot of work with OneNote, you'll be glad to know you can now access dark mode to improve readability of both your notes and user interface while providing better contrast. And this can be especially useful in a low light environment as well. All we do here in OneNote is go up to the file tab and then down to the bottom to select options. From here with general selected in the left hand pane, we can go down to the bottom where we see the current office theme being used. If you're like me using the default, it's labeled colorful. Now other devices will have different options, you might see something like light mode here, but clicking the dropdown will give you access to there it is black, here on a PC, but on another device you might see dark as in dark mode. We also have dark gray here, which is also a little bit easier on the eyes. So going with black is the same as choosing dark mode, with that selected clicking okay, is going to make some changes to your OneNote appearance. So just keep in mind that dark mode doesn't actually alter the properties of your content in any way, it just changes how the content is displayed. So if you're sharing a notebook with anyone, any content that you create here in OneNote, while in dark mode will be just as legible to other notebook co-authors who may be viewing the same pages in another mode, such as colorful. To go back, we repeat the process of clicking file, then options and changing the office theme back to something else such as colorful. Clicking okay confirms the changes.
