How to Enable Windows 11 Notepad Dark Mode

Written by Thirumalraj

Windows 11 Notepad has a dark mode feature.

Let’s see the steps to deactivate or activate it.

Enable or Disable Windows 11 Notepad Dark Mode

Notepad, by default, applies the state of your PC’s dark mode to itself.

In other words, if your PC is in dark mode, Notepad is in the dark theme.

If your computer is not in dark mode, Notepad is also not in dark theme.

So, as you wish, set your PC to dark or light mode to turn the Notepad dark theme on or off.

That’s it.

If you want to enable dark mode only for the Notepad app, the below method is for you.

Here are the steps:

Open Notepad and hit the Gear icon in the top right.

You can see the “App theme” now. Click on it, and you will see the following options:

  • Light – disable dark mode.
  • Dark – enable dark mode.
  • Use system setting – this one is the default and applies the dark mode state of your PC to the Notepad app.

Pick the one you prefer, and that’s it.

Thanks for reading.
