Microsoft has always offered the layout of its applications and folders with a clear standard since the early versions of the operating system. With Windows 10 updates, the company ended up including a long-standing option: a dark pattern for all actions.

The dark mode of Windows 10 was one of Microsoft’s promises shortly after the OS was released, but it came only a short time later through one of the recent updates. See below how to enable this different look for Windows folders and apps.
Turn on dark mode in Windows 10
1. Access the Windows 10 settings and select the “Customization” option, in which you can also change the theme of the system and its wallpaper;
2. Within the Windows 10 customizations, select “Colors” from the options in the left column;
3. Among the possibilities of colors, you can, in addition to changing the theme of the blocks of the Start menu and the Task bar, activate the option “Choose the default application mode”, which should be marked “Clear”; select “Dark” to change the look of your Windows 10.
It’s pretty simple, is not it? Now Windows 10 apps will have a dark look, often more pleasing to the eye – in case you have already installed the May 10 update on your PC. If you want to switch to light mode, just reverse the process.
