    How to Change Microsoft Edge Chromium Theme to Light or Dark Mode


    Microsoft has adopted the Chromium open source project in the development of Microsoft Edge on the desktop to create better web compatibility. This new Microsoft Edge runs on the same Chromium web engine as the Google Chrome browser, offering you best in class web compatibility and performance.

    Microsoft has also introduced a new Microsoft Edge logo that is designed to capture the waves of innovation that they plan to bring to you.

    Currently, the new Chromium based Microsoft Edge web browser is only available to download and install as a Microsoft Edge Insider. General availability to the public is expected to be on January 15, 2020 in more than 90 languages.

    The new Microsoft Edge will be supported on all versions of Windows 7, Windows 8.1, Windows 10, Windows Server (2016 and above), Windows Server (2008 R2 to 2012 R2), and macOS.

    You can change the theme in Microsoft Edge to a light mode or dark mode for all profiles.

    This Microsoft Edge theme does not get applied to the pages of websites, but you can separately enable or disable dark mode for all websites.

    Here's How:

    1 Open Microsoft Edge.

    2 Click/tap on the Settings and more (Alt+F) 3 dots menu icon, and click/tap on Settings. (see screenshot below)

    how do i change the color of the font in windows 10 edge?

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting on Microsoft Communities.

    In Windows 10, you cannot change the colour of the Font.

    If you are referring to the theme on Microsoft Edge and if it is showing a dark, you can change it to light. Follow the steps to change the theme:

    • Open Microsoft Edge.
    • Click on More actions > Settings
    • Click on Choose a theme and change it to light.
    Hope it helps.

    Change Default App Mode to Light or Dark Theme in Windows 10


    To get a "dark mode" for file explorer you need to use "Color Filter" in ease of access, and that will change all your color settings on the whole system, icons, wallpaper, settings, app color mode(need to switch to light so it will become dark) inclusive. what it does is just invert all color settings. After switching to invert, you will need to re theme your system.

    *Arrow Turn On or Off Color Filters to the Screen in Windows 10 Customization Tutorials
