How to Enable Dark Mode in Windows 10


Windows 10 users can now easily switch to dark mode. This mode enables dark background throughout except on a few places. This mode is by default available to users on the anniversary update of Windows 10. The file explorer would have the same old white color and would not change to dark while using this mode. The dark mode would complement a PC with AMOLED display and would help save a lot of battery. Applications being used would have their default color scheme in the dark mode.
