Enable Windows 10 Hidden Dark Theme 20150830

Make Windows easier on the eyes

  1. Crush
    Operating System:
    Windows 10
    If you're anything like me, when you installed Windows 10 the amount of bright and white in the interface was really annoying at night.

    Enter stage left, the Hidden Dark Theme. Microsoft is always adding features so they may make this available without a few steps, but for now it is going to involve editing the Registry.

    I have attached a file which will do the edits for you but, if you want to do them manually, browse to the following keys

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Themes\Personalize]

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Themes\Personalize]

    and change this value to 0, as opposed to 1

    "AppsUseLightTheme"=dword:00000000
