You can set the color palette for the Windows interface and for application windows to dark or light mode. This video shows how to set a global light or dark mode and additional custom options.
- [Instructor] Set up Dark mode, Light mode or a Custom configuration. Go to Settings, to the Personalization category, then to Colors. The option to choose your default Windows mode changes interface elements and menus in Windows, including the Task Bar and the Start menu. The option to choose your default app mode changes application windows. Not all applications will change when you set this mode, but most of them will. The menu labeled Choose your Color allows you to set the Windows mode and the app mode together at the same time. Choose Light to set both to the Light mode. Choose Dark to set both to the Dark mode. And the Custom option lets you set your Windows mode and your app mode separately.
