What is Dark Mode on Windows 11/10?

Dark Mode is a feature of Windows 11/10 where it is very easy to read texts whether it is day or night. It gives a comfortable view to our eyes when we look at our computer screen. This feature reduces our tiredness and relaxes our eyes/brain.

By birth, Windows 11 and 10 both support Dark mode or theme. You can enable dark mode in Windows 11, which works with the Start menu, taskbar, File Explorer, Settings app, menus, and all apps that support dark. The dark mode or theme builds it more accessible to focus and causes less eye tiredness.

However, you will enable dark mode in Windows 11/10 by browsing by Settings app; Microsoft has not supported an option to enable it through the Quick Access menu or hotkey. If you frequently switch between dark and light modes, you must enlist a third-party tool’s help.
