  1. Dark mode / Light mode doesn't work


    In Light mode: taskbar color never changes - always a hideous yellow/green, everything else follows color chosen

    In Dark mode: taskbar color changes- i choose a dark gray- but everything else is just black no matter which color is chosen.

    Neither option is acceptable. Is there a way to get rid on color modes and go back to standard one color everywhere?

    :)

  2. How do you keep "lights on" in dark mode?

    "Dark mode" refers to the Mail app's dark mode, common to Windows apps. Affects the color of the message list, menu bar, etc.

    "Lights on" or "lights off" refers to the reading pane's background color, a feature recently added to Mail.

    I'm asking if there's a way to set "lights on" to default, even if the Mail app is set to dark mode.

    Dark mode

    Hi EpicDoge

    It depends on the version of Windows 10 you have installed, this option changed in version 1903, please check if this works for you:

    Open the Settings App (gear icon on your Start Menu)

    Go to Personalization - Colors

    Set 'Choose your Color' to Custom

    Set Windows Mode to Dark

    Set App Mode to light or Dark

    Then the option to change the Taskbar color should be active . ..

    You can also set App Mode to light or dark separately form Windows Mode and there is a new feature in 1903, where form each Apps settings, you can individually set an app to either dark or light mode . ..

    .

    Windows 10 Dark Mode Not Working

    Hi kontkrabber

    In Windows 10 version 1903, the Mode settings changed, please try this:

    Open the Settings App (gear icon on your Start Menu)

    Go to Personalization - Colors

    Set 'Choose your Color' to Custom

    Set Windows Mode to Dark

    Set App Mode to Dark

    If that does not work for you, toggle App Mode to light, then back to Dark . . .

    If your settings are different to the above listed settings:

    Click your Start Button, type winver and hit Enter

    On the resulting dialog, what Version No. and build No. of Windows 10 are you running?
