- While Chrome’s dark mode will help most of the time, it can get in the way from time to time.
- Deactivating it is the best solution, at least until the conditions to activate it are given
- The procedure to disable dark mode in Chrome will depend on the operating system
We have talked a lot on this portal about the dark mode and the many benefits it has for Internet users. That’s why most of the programs and apps we use have built it into their Settings. But While it is a very useful feature, from time to time you will want to disable dark mode in Chrome. Assuming this is the case, in this article we will show you what are the steps to follow to do it.
As we have said before, this mode has some very interesting advantages, such as the fact that it tires our eyes less if we have to use our devices at night. In the second instance, by opting for it, the energy consumption of the equipment will be lower and we will be able to save battery without having to resort to worse limitations.
On the other hand, the problem is that the dark mode is a bit annoying when the light conditions are good. There will be people who are not completely comfortable with the screen of their devices dimming while browsing through the Google browser, so they will find the following tutorials of interest.
How to disable dark mode in Chrome browser?
No matter how much Apple insists that we use Safari, the majority of its users still prefer Chrome. You can easily disable dark mode on macOS by following this step by step:
- Click on the Apple icon in the upper left corner of the screen
- Select System Preferences and then General
- Under Appearance, select Light
As you can see, it’s extremely easy and won’t take more than a couple of seconds.
In Windows 10 we can carry out the corresponding procedure without taking more than that, like this:
- Launch Chrome and go to Google.com
- Go to Settings, in the lower right corner of the screen
- Tap on Dark theme to disable it
In Windows 11 we can carry out the corresponding procedure without taking longer than that, like this:
- Click Start and select Settings
- In the left panel select Personalization
- Play the theme Light
As you can see, there is a little difference between the tutorial according to each version of Windows.
On Chrome OS
If your Chromebook dims as the day goes on, it probably has Dark Mode turned on. Some users prefer to change the screen brightness, while others will feel comfortable turning it off:
- Click on the bottom right corner of the screen
- Locate the Dark Theme icon and tap it to turn it off
If your Android has dark mode turned on by default but you don’t find it useful, there is a way to turn it off. You can turn it back on later if you need to, just like on any other device, from the Chrome options:
- Launch the Google Chrome app
- In the upper right corner, tap on the Three dots icon
- In the menu, select Settings, and then go to Basics and Themes
- Select the option for Light
Sometimes your iPhone’s Chrome dark mode will kick in when it’s not needed and that can get in your way. You may also have enabled this feature by default, but it is possible to disable it in a minute:
- Tap the Settings icon
- Go to the Display and brightness section
- Below the header, select Light
On Apple tablets it doesn’t make much difference if you want to get rid of this feature immediately:
- Launch the Google Chrome app
- Scroll down and locate the Dark Mode Theme button
- Click on this button to deactivate it
Beyond the fact that it is a great ally when it comes to reducing visual fatigue or saving battery power, Chrome’s dark mode can be counterproductive when we have enough light. That is why it is key that you know how to disable it. As you may have noticed, in most operating systems it is possible to do it from its Settings.
Now that you know how to do it, are you thinking of turning off Chrome’s dark mode on any of your devices?
