One of the most popular themes or appearance settings that has been picked up recently is the Dark Mode. The seemingly normal setting turns the UI of your device dark and offers a more pleasing reading and interacting experience at night. Even in general, the dark mode offers that classy appearance to your UI and makes it a lot more pleasing to use.
Recently, all major platforms in the market (iOS, Android, MacOS, Windows), released their own versions of Dark Mode. While Apple devices and most Android devices went for a system wide dark mode, there are still some OEMs who prefer to keep it default. To counter this, individual apps like the Google Chrome browser have now started releasing their version of dark modes for people who do not have the luxury of a system wide Dark Mode setting.
If you are not a fan of the Dark Mode on the Chrome Browser however, this tutorial will show you how to turn off the Dark Mode on the Google Chrome browser.
Case 1. On the iOS and Android Smartphones
The only way to turn off the Dark mode on Google Chrome in your smartphones, is to turn off the system wide Dark Mode settings. This is how to do it.
Step 1. Open the Settings on your iOS Device.
Step 2. Tap on the Display and Brightness option.
Step 3. Under the Appearance tab, select the ‘Light Mode’.
This will convert the UI elements to the Light settings entirely. You can always switch back to Dark mode following the same procedure.
Step 1. Open the Settings app on your Android Device.
Step 2. Tap on the ‘Display‘ option in the Settings Menu.
Step 3. Toggle ‘OFF‘ the Dark Theme option.
This will turn off the Dark mode on your Android device, and as a result, on the Chrome Browser as well.
Case 2. On the PC
If your Laptop/Desktop supports Dark Mode, you can turn it off to disable the dark mode on the Chrome Browser.
Windows 10 Devices
Step 1. Open the Settings app on your Windows 10 PC.
Step 2. Click on the ‘Personalisation‘ button.
Step 3. In the left pane, click on the ‘Colours‘ tab.
Step 4. In the right pane, scroll down till you see the ‘Choose your default app mode‘ option.
Step 5. Choose the ‘Light‘ option from the options.
This will disable the Dark mode on your Windows 10 device and Chrome Browser as a consequence.
Step 1. Open the System Preferences app on your iMac or MacBook.
Step 2. Click on the ‘General‘ option from the menu.
Step 3. Under the appearance tab, click on the ‘Light‘ option.
If you do not have a system that supports Dark Mode, then there is no need to worry as Google Chrome on the Desktop does not support a dedicated dark mode setting yet. The default theme is White and it will remain so until they release a Dark mode and you switch to it.
