Chrome has a new Dark Mode - how to enable it
After years of waiting, Google Chrome finally released a Dark Mode in it's latest version. The Dark Mode is automatically rolled out to some users, but here's how you can enable it on your Windows computer.
If you haven't already, you need to update to the latest version of Chrome. Eventually, your browser will automatically update. But to skip the wait, navigate to
chrome://settings/help and Chrome will check for an update and install it.
You'll need version
74 or higher to enable dark mode.
Change your shortcut
You'll need to use a shortcut to run Chrome in dark mode. If you don't already have a shortcut on your desktop, create one now.
Next, right-click on the shortcut and open the properties dialog. Where it says
--force-dark-mode at the very end of the path (outside of the quotation marks).
Once you create this shortcut, you can click+drag it onto your taskbar.
There you go, should now have Dark Mode enabled in Chrome.
