    Dark mode is the new system skin available to MacOS users since version 10.14 Mojave. This energy-efficient theme does not only apply to Apple applications: Word is also concerned, provided you use it as an Office 365 subscriber.

    This tutorial helps you make sure dark mode is enabled on your version of Microsoft Word. The trick concerns the Office 365 subscribers on Mac. As a prerequisite, your computer must have been updated to at least macOS 10.14 Mojave.


    Enable Dark Mode in Word

    1. Enable dark mode of macOS by following the steps of this tutorial (menu System Preferences > General > Appearance Mode > Dark).


    2. If Dark Mode hasn't already applied to Word, click the menu Word > Preferences.

    3. Select the menu General.

    4. Disable the option labeled Disable Dark Mode.

    If you're using Word on Windows, Microsoft Office themes give you a look similar to Dark Mode. The black theme can be activated easily via the Options menu > General then clicking on the drop-down menu Office theme.
