How to enable dark mode in Microsoft Teams

Dark mode is rapidly becoming more common in applications.

However, Microsoft Teams does not adhere to the Windows 10 system color scheme match, meaning if you want to enable dark mode in Teams, you’re going to have to do it manually.

But don’t worry, it’s relatively quick and easy to do – and there’s even a bonus ‘High contrast’ mode, should that be your thing.

In this quick guide we’ll detail step by step how you go about switching from the light (default) theme, to the much more appealing (in our opinion) Dark mode theme.
