How to (actually) enable dark mode on chromeOS

The dark mode option is locked behind a feature flag, so you'll have to enable it.

  • Open Chrome and navigate to chrome://flags, then search for "dark".
  • From the list, switch Dark/light mode of system UI and WebUI dark mode to enabled.

  • Restart your chromebook to apply the changes.

Now that the option is available, you just have to switch it on!

  • Open the Settings app.
  • Navigate to Personalization, then click Dark mode.
  • Switch the option on!
