How to Force Enable Google Chrome’s WIP Dark Mode on Windows Machines

How to enable and test the new Google Chrome dark mode on Windows 10

According to this tutorial, macOS users could use the "-enable-feature=DarkMode" flag to sync Chrome with the macOS light/dark UI, or they could force Chrome into a permanent dark mode via the "-force-dark-mode" flag.

Despite the developers adding the new dark mode, Chrome could still get some serious competition down the road seeing as how Microsoft is replacing it's web rendering engine with Chromium later this year in the Edge brower.

"Windows 10 allows users to set their apps to "light" or "dark" mode".

As MSPoweruser reports, the bugbear has been on Chrome's radar (thanks in no small part to Kasting himself) for some considerable time, but this is the first solid evidence that something is really being done about it.

The dark mode feature is expected to appear in Chrome versions 72 or 73 on macOS, which are due out in January and March 2019, respectively.

We all know very well that the tech giant Google's web browser, of course, Google Chrome has won the browser war: with more than 50% stake, it is ahead of the competition on both desktops and smartphones.

The obsession around Dark Mode continues, as in the last few days we have heard about nothing but the upcoming dark side of Google Chrome.

The "-enable-feature=DarkMode" flag that lets Chrome automatically switch between a light and dark mode depending on the operating system's UI light/dark color scheme is now not supported on Windows 10. Hopefully, we'll get a dark mode for Chrome on mobile soon as well. Once that's done, running the browser will automatically disable the new dark mode in Chrome.

Apple said the reason for offering a dark mode is that it is "easy on your eyes and helps you focus on your work". If you can't wait for the official rollout, you can still manage to test the implementation using Chrome Canary.

Right-click on the shortcut icon and select Properties. Then, in the "Target" field, add '-force-dark-mode' without the quotations. The flag is now available in Chrome 73 on Canary and Developer version but works only on Canary build. Remove the parameter again to restore the light theme. Other aspects of the dark theme may change with time as well.
