One of the positive features of Windows 11 is that its users can change many parts of it to their liking. One of these sections is the choice of theme or dark or light mode. If you are one of those people who work in a dark or dim room, it is better to activate the Dark mode because your eyes will be less damaged by the screen light and will get tired later.
Like Windows 10, Windows 11 comes with two primary options for its menus, settings, and other primary interface elements: dark or light. While it’s easy to change from one to the other, it isn’t immediately apparent how to access that option. Here’s how you do it.
Switch from Light to Dark or Dark to Light
From the Windows 11 desktop, right-click on any open space on your wallpaper, then click “Personalization.”
Scroll down a bit and click “Colors.” The first option on this screen Is “Choose your mode.” This is what you’re looking for, more or less. You’ve got three options:
- Light — most backgrounds and visual elements will be white or light grey
- Dark — most backgrounds and visual elements will be shades of dark grey
- Custom — choose between Light and Dark modes for both Windows settings menus and apps
And here’s the opposite configuration:
Note that not every app supports automatically switching between light and dark modes with Windows.
