One of the most sought after and popular personalization options available on operating systems today is the Dark Mode. Featuring in most platforms in the market, the Dark mode on a device essentially darkens the UI to match the usual darkness of the night and comes with a lot of benefits including power saving.

While macOS and iOS came out with Dark mode relatively early, Windows 10 made sure it followed right behind and today, the latest build of Microsoft’s Windows 10  features a Dark mode in some of its applications, most notably, the File Explorer.
