    Windows 10

    Build 10162 and Dark Theme


    I added the 32bit DWORD, HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Themes\Personalize

    SystemUsesLightTheme, set to 0 and rebooted without success. Any ideas what I missed or is this feature no longer works?

    Thanks

    You've got everything right except the name of the DWORD, it should be:

    AppsUseLightTheme

    It doesn't work for me in 64-bit Windows 10 Pro build 10162. Is it still working for you?

    Hmmm..., strange. I don't know what to suggest.
    Maybe a reboot?

    Clean install or upgrade. With upgrades things carry over(cruft). Sometimes cruft is good in that old functions still work, sometimes it can cause conflicts.

    The desktop was an upgrade to 10162 from 10159 upgraded from a clean install 10158. It doesn't work on it.

    It works on the laptop that has been upgraded to each build from the start.

    Does this only affect Settings?

    I think Win + P is affected as well as Calculator, Alarms, Voice Recorder, some bits of Maps and some others I don't recall at the moment.
