Bored of the way your browser looks? Or do you want an aesthetic that's easier on your eyes? The new flagship browser for Windows 10 has a dark theme feature that reverses the color scheme by putting white text on a black background in its menus and navigation, but not on the web pages you view. Here's how to change your theme in Edge browser. 

1. Open Edge.

    Enable dark mode in Windows Edge is a joke. It just turn the top of the many lines dark and not the websites. If you open google it white and not affected at all from dark mode. It should be called dark title in edge. Now finaly the dark explorer come and i works, I will never use edge before it will be more user friendly and have full dark mode. Today the edge is still sucking big time if you want to edit anything. It seems that microsoft is still hurt and agry about google and other companies that make user friendly browsers. Like no add of google as search providers hehehe. Edge could be good if they let us decide how to manage like favorites the way you could in explorer, but now it is crap and not easy at all in any of the settings in edge. Hope they soon change and send us an update so we can enjoy the edge like we want an not microsoft, at the end it is we the users that use this browser.
