GUIDE: How Do I Enable Dark Mode In Microsoft Outlook?

Do you often use the computer after the sun’s gone down?

If you’re a night owl, you may have noticed how bright the standard configuration of your computer screen can be in the evenings. By default, most operating systems and applications have a light palette, which produces more white light while on screen.

Over the course of a day, and especially when the sun is down, this type of lighting can be exhausting for our eyes. That’s why “dark mode” has become such a popular feature with users.

Do you know how it works?

How To Enable Dark Mode In Microsoft Outlook

If you do a lot of late-night emailing, your eyes will certainly benefit from using dark mode in Microsoft Outlook. It changes the default light color palette to a more subtle dark theme, which produces less bright white light.

Here’s how to turn it on:

  1. Navigate to the toolbar
  2. Click File
  3. Select Office Account
  4. Under the Office Theme, select Black

Considering how much time we spend in our inboxes, shouldn’t they look the way we want them to?

Make sure to customize your experience by enabling dark mode, if it’s the right choice for you. This theme is ideal for users that want to conserve battery energy or that prefer to work at night.
