Windows 10 Dark Theme 2015-09-14

Enable the dark theme in Windows 10

  1. jmarket
    There's a hidden theme, dubbed "Dark Theme", inside Windows 10. It's hidden and can't be accessed normally, but a Registry tweak can enable this. Browse to:

    Code:
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Themes\Personalize]
    
    and change the below value from:

    Code:
    "AppsUseLightTheme"=dword:00000001
    
    to:

    Code:
    "AppsUseLightTheme"=dword:00000000
    
    Then browse to:

    Code:
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Themes\Personalize]
    
    and change the below value from:

    Code:
    "AppsUseLightTheme"=dword:00000001
    
    to:

    Code:
    "AppsUseLightTheme"=dword:00000000
    

    You can also use the supplied Reg files included in the RAR file to enable/disable the theme. :)
