    Chrome is stuck on dark mode


    I had to reinstall Windows today on my laptop, I also reinstalled Chrome and it is stuck in dark mode. There is no setting under Appearance to change it and even the flag chrome://flags and dark mode did not help. I would appreciate if anyone has any help on this.I am on Windows 2004, all updates current. The problem is not present in Edge so I know its not any of my Windows settings. Thanks.

    I found this on the Chrome help forums dated March 2020...

    You need to run Chrome as Administrator and go into the chrome://flags. Type in Dark Mode in the search box and then disable that one. It should get everything back to normal.

    Thanks for the replies. I found the problem, it was my mistake all along. I had two dark mode extensions in Chrome, one was the Dark Night Mode, the other is Dark Mode. Dark Mode works a little better than Dark Night Mode, sometimes I use it to manually enter dark mode when using my laptop at night.

    I had turned Dark Night Mode off when I found and started using the Dark Mode extension but when I checked today it somehow turned back on when I downloaded Chrome again last night. It was late and I was tired when I downloaded Chrome so I just did not see the other extension was on again. Turning Dark Night Mode off and setting the Chrome flag for dark mode back to default fixed the problem. I removed Dark Night Mode as well so it should be ok now.

    Thanks for the replies. This one is solved now.
