Add App Mode Light Or Dark Theme To Right Click


If you're the type of computational user who utilizes your PC for many hours on a daily basis, you'd want your environment to be as comfortable as possible. You may need to adjust your settings when working during the day In a well-lit area, to that of a nighttime, when performing tasks In artificial lighting. As such, In this tutorial, I will show you how to add App Mode light or dark theme to the right-click context menu, hence you can switch between light & dark themes as needed.


Before I begin, here's what I'm referring to. By default, when opening the Microsoft Store In Windows 10, It's set to the light theme. The same applies when accessing the Windows 10 Settings, Inclusive of everything It contains.

For Instance, this Is the Microsoft Store at It's default state, namely the light theme.


And here's the result after applying the dark theme.


When you open the Windows Settings, the dark theme will also take effect.



Wouldn't It be great, If you could switch between both themes with a click of the mouse? Well, I will demonstrate how to do this, by using a neat little Registry file that will automatically add the App Mode option to the right-click context menu. You can then select between the light or dark theme.

All that's required on your part, Is to execute the Registry file, follow a couple of prompts and the job's done. I have provided the download links to the Registry file, at the end of this article. So without further ado, let's get this tutorial started.

Step One:

Once you've downloaded the file, extract It's contents to a folder of your choice and double-click the Add App.reg file. A message will be displayed, asking whether to add the entries to the Windows Registry, so hit Yes.


Step Two:

A message will be returned, confirming that the entries have been successfully added. Hit OK to finalize the process.


Step Three:

I've navigated to my computer's desktop, right-clicked on a blank area and as you can see, App mode and It's respective theme settings, Is readily available. I can switch between Light and Dark theme as I see fit.


Step Four:

In the event you change your mind and wish to remove App mode from the right-click context menu, simply double-click the Remove App.reg file, and hit Yes.


Final Thoughts:

By applying this tweak, It cannot get any easier to switch between light & dark themes. Another good thing about It, Is that It automatically adds the entries to the Windows Registry. As opposed to manually editing the Registry, this Is not susceptible to error nor corruption.

Use any of the links below to download the aforementioned Registry files.
