If an application does not adopt the dark theme, you may need to adjust that app’s individual preference for how it applies the Windows default theme.
- Head to where the app keeps its appearance settings. In the new Edge browser, click on the the three-dot menu to the right of the menu bar, tap Settings, and then tap Appearance.
- Now, check that the app’s appearance preference is set to adopt the Windows 10 default theme.
