Use the dark theme in Microsoft Edge

The dark theme changes the default bright background color in the new Microsoft Edge  to a darker color, which is easier on the eyes in low-light environments or if you prefer less bright interfaces.

Here's how to activate dark mode:

  1. Go to Settings and more  > Settings .

  2. Select Appearance from the Settings list.

  3. Under Customize browser > Theme, use the drop-down list to select Dark.
