Windows 11 dark mode is a display setting that allows users to switch the color scheme of the operating system to a dark or black background with light text and UI elements. It is used to provide users with an alternative color scheme for their interface that uses darker colors, typically black or dark grey, instead of the traditional light-colored background.
This can be particularly useful for users who spend a lot of time using their devices in low-light environments or who simply prefer the aesthetic of a dark interface. Dark mode can also have some practical benefits, such as reducing eye strain, improving readability, and conserving battery life on devices with OLED screens. Dark mode can be applied system-wide or on a per-app basis.
To enable Windows 11 dark mode, follow these steps:
- Click on the “Start” button in the taskbar.
- Click on the “Settings” icon (it looks like a gear) in the Start menu.
- In the Settings app, click on “Personalization” on the left-hand side.
- In the “Personalization” menu, click on “Colors” on the left-hand side.
- Under the “Choose your color” section, select “Dark” from the drop-down menu.
- The dark mode will now be enabled on your Windows 11 device.
Alternatively, you can also use the keyboard shortcut “Windows key + A” to open the Action Center, then click on the “Dark mode” button to toggle it on or off.
Once you’ve enabled Dark mode, your Windows 11 interface will switch to a dark theme, including any included pictures or backgrounds.
