Berlin It displays system bars and buttons in shades of gray and black. Many people find this more pleasant in a dark environment, so sometimes you save a little electricity. How it works:
- Enter system Settings. This can be found via the gear icon in the start bar.
- In the left column, select the item “Personalization”.
- Now make the selection under “Color”. Windows 10 hides the Dark Mode under “Color”, in Windows 11 the setting is called “Select mode”.
- Finish. If you like, you can now also adjust the accent colors of the system or color buttons and frames in a desired color.
The color mode setting also affects other installed programs. Some of them are based on the color mode of the system in their representation.
So it may be that after switching to dark mode, other programs are suddenly displayed with dark program bars. If you don’t like this, you can change it in the settings of the respective program.
By the way, if you are still using Windows 7, you don’t need to search for the setting: it doesn’t exist there.
