Windows Insiders can now try out the Dark mode in Windows 10 PCs


Today, Microsoft released Windows 10 Build 14316 to Insiders in the Fast Ring. As we previously reported, the latest build of Windows 10 introduces an option to enable the Dark mode of the OS. Previously, users had to tweak some registry keys to enable this feature — however, in build 14316, Microsoft added a simple option which allows users to switch between both of the themes. Of course, this feature isn’t ready yet and some parts of the OS still have a light theme as expected.

Microsoft states:

When you switch to dark mode, apps such as Settings, Store, Alarms & Clock, Calculator and other UWP apps that listen and respond to theme changes in the OS will change into dark mode. Some UWP apps that control their own theme settings (separate from Windows) won’t change by toggling this setting.

We’ve also added a new option under Settings > Personalization > Colors to show color only on app title bars in addition to the option to show color on Start, the taskbar, and Action Center.

Additionally, Microsoft has also added a new option which lets you show your accent color only on the title bar, rather than showing it on all parts of the OS like the Start Menu, taskbar and the Action Center.
