Windows 10 users are also entitled to a “Night” mode. Increasingly widespread, this dark mode is not only an aesthetic choice: it is above all a way to save battery and avoid “blue light”, known to disrupt sleep cycles.

Find out how to activate this mode in a few clicks and instantly revamp most of your software thanks to our tutorial dedicated to teaching you how to organize your workstation on Windows 10.


Enable dark mode on Windows 10

  1. Open the menu Windows settings.


  2. Click on the menu Customization.

  3. Click on Colors dans la colonne de gauche.

  4. Click on the drop-down menu Choose your color and select Dark.

Dark Mode changes the skin of Windows 10, its windows, and all Windows apps. Some third-party software is also corrupted, such as Chrome or Firefox. For others, like Word or Excel, a dark mode is available, but you have to activate it through the software settings.
