    changing from dark mode to light


    My wife's laptop has dark mode enabled, and sometimes we cannot see text.
    On my desktop after selecting Personalization, then Colors there is an option for light or dark modes, on the wife's laptop this option is not there ?
    Note sure if this is part of it but, Transparency effects is optioned on and, I can't option it off.
    The High contrast mode is currently turned off.

    She is running Windows 10 home edition Build 19042.789

    I would start with changing the theme to "Windows" or "Windows (light)"

    Then go to colors, then to background.




    Or... right click the START button and choose: Run
    In the Run box paste this:
    explorer.exe shell:::{ED834ED6-4B5A-4bfe-8F11-A626DCB6A921}
    In there... you can also choose the Windows or Windows (light), theme.





    If any themes are "missing"...

    Execute attached batch script and when prompted as "Do You Want To Enable Dark Theme" type N press Enter key to change to using Light Theme.

    Thank you so much for this! You taught me some commands I didn't know before and I was able to turn this into a basic toggle (attached). Thank you again!
