If the current Windows 10 is too bright for your eyes, see if the night mode theme is up your alley for better night time usage.
Windows OSes have always been known to be natural sources of light in the darkest of environments, but a new third party application can potentially allow users to take advantage of a Night Mode Theme which will make it easier for you to use Windows 10 in dark settings without sticking out like a sore thumb.
Before proceeding, please keep in mind that this IS NOT an official Windows process. All of this is done by a third party application so don’t hold Microsoft or Windows liable for any mistakes incurred.
The theme does include a versatility of colors to it, giving you more colors to play around with. Users will be able to explore Blue, red, green, orange and many other color options. Included in the package is a theme for Chrome too which is set for black color.
There are several color combinations available (blue shown), including red, orange, green, etc. I have also included a Chrome theme I made (simple, minimal black), as well as registry files for changing the system apps to the night mode theme.
Let’s get started, shall we?
Once you have the RAR file in hand. extract the Contents of it where you please.
Once all the contents are out of the RAR file, find and run UxStyle_0242_x86_x64_preview.exe and Install it.
Once installed, head back to the same place where your RAR files content was extracted and open the “OldNewExplorer” file. Within it, run “OldNewExplorerCfg” and make sure you have the following options checked. (Click Install on Shell extension)
Once again, navigate back to the directory where your RAR contents lie and run the “Make Windows 10 Use Dark Theme” registry file by double clicking it and confirming it.
And now are on the last step of this guide. You have to go in the “Themes” folder in the place where your RAR contents lie, Press CTRL + A to highlight all the files, and then CTRL + C to copy them.
Once you have copied (CTRL + V) the files, paste them in the directory shown below.
Now, you have to go to Cortana / Search box and type in Personalization. In it, look at “Themes” for a pleasant surprise and apply the one that you like best.
We would like to thank DJApoc on reddit for compiling these files in one place.
If you are curious on what the theme looks like, here is a screenshot.
If you have tried out the night mode theme, do post a screenshot of which color you went with!
