While Dark Mode is not a new fad, certain apps have been slow to adapt and add native options for enabling it. But if you’re a frequent Facebook app user, you’re in luck. Here’s how to enable or disable Dark Mode on Facebook using desktop and mobile apps.
Enabling Dark Mode on Facebook not only helps make it easier on the eyes but also makes viewing the app easier in low-light environments. It saves battery too. However, for certain users, Dark Mode doesn’t sit well. So, depending on your preference, you can either enable or disable Dark Mode on Facebook. Let’s show you how.
How to Enable or Disable Dark Mode on Facebook Desktop App
The Facebook desktop app has native menu options to enable Dark Mode. Additionally, your Windows device settings also change Facebook to dark mode. So, here’s how to use both methods.
1. Make Facebook Dark Using Its Settings
Step 1: Open Facebook on any web browser.
Step 2: Click on your profile icon in the top right corner.
Step 3: From the options, click on ‘Display & accessibility’.
Step 4: Select On.
This will immediately put Facebook in Dark Mode. You can also select Automatic if you wish to follow your device’s theme or Off if you wish to turn off Dark Mode on Facebook.
2. Use Windows Settings
Note: This will only work if your Facebook desktop app’s Dark Mode setting is set to Automatic.
Step 1: Right-click anywhere on your desktop and click on Personalize.
Step 2: Here, click on Colors.
Step 3: Click on the ‘Choose your mode’ drop-down menu.
Step 4: Now, select Dark.
This will turn on Dark Mode on your Windows 11 device and make Facebook dark as well. If you wish to revert to Light Mode, select Light from the ‘Choose your mode’ drop-down menu.
