The dark mode is a new all-black interface that has gained popularity recently. With the amount of on-screen time that we have in this digital age, it might be soothing for your eyes to see a sober black screen and not the bright white light. Microsoft Edge has its own dark theme. Edge does not work in dark mode even if you have enabled it on your Windows 10. You’ll have to enable it separately for Microsoft Edge. 

Here’s how you can enable dark mode in Microsoft Edge:
