How to Enable Dark Mode in Microsoft Edge

Microsoft Edge Dark Mode

One of the major features of recent Google Chrome’s (version 78) update was the ability to enable force dark mode on websites that do not have a dark version by default. And If you have Microsoft Edge based on Chromium, then this feature will enable dark mode in the Microsoft Edge browser.

Dark Mode is one feature I use a lot, especially at night, since it causes less strain on my eyes. Also, you will have more battery life if you have a phone with an OLED/AMOLED display.

There are different methods to enable Dark Mode in Microsoft Edge for different operating systems. That is why I have compiled the list of all methods that will guide you on how to enable dark mode in Microsoft Edge for Windows, Android, and iOS.

In case you didn’t like the dark mode feature, you can repeat from Step 1 and select the Disabled option.

There are other options also available like Enabled with a simple HSL-based inversion, CIELAB-based inversion, RGB-based inversion, selective image inversion, selective inversion of non-image elements, and selective inversion of everything. You can try one by one to choose which one suits you best.

Keep in mind that this feature isn’t perfect yet so some websites may look strange to you, but it works well.
