By default Window, 10 uses a lot of white for the backgrounds of system apps. This white background thing is looking quite normal, but some users may want an even darker version of the OS.
In this post, we show you how can you get Dark Theme in Window 10 PC without downloading any software from registry hacks.
How to Enable the Dark Theme for Windows 10
In this post, I show you two methods for enabling Dark Theme in Window 10. First, one is from Registry hacks and second is from downloading registry files on your PC.
Enable Dark Mode in Window 10 PC from Registry Editor
1. Open Run Program by pressing Win + R keyboard button and type regedit. Now press enter.
Select ‘Yes’ when it asks for permission.
2. Change key #1
Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Themes\ Personalize by double clicking each “folder” aka key
3. Missing Personalize?
You may not have the sub-key \Personalize (I did not) so you can create one; if you already have one just go to Step 5
4. Create \Personalize Key
If you are missing the \Personalize key, just right-click on \Themes and select New > Key and call it Personalize
5. Create new DWORD
Right-click \Personalize and select New > DWORD (32-bit) Value
6. Name it
Name the DWORD AppsUseLightTheme
7. Correct value?
For its value, it should already be 0 so leave it
Change Key #2
Repeat the above but for HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Themes \ Personalize. Once again, create a new AppsUseLightTheme DWORD (32-bit) Value with a 0 value.
Now, log out of Windows 10 and back in again. Start menu > Select your photo > Choose ‘Sign out’
That is it!
Disabling Dark Theme in Windows 10
In order to disable the Dark Theme you just have to delete the DWORD values you created in the two registry paths or set their values to 1. Then, reboot or log out and log back in to see the changes.

Some of the apps keep their old interfaces in the Dark Theme, so don’t expect everything to be just like you imagine it. It is great for the most part, though, and it’s worth trying out. If you are experiencing problems, don’t hesitate to ask us a question or let us know your opinion!
