One of the features that had many curious to how it was going to transition to Windows 11, is Dark Mode. After seeing the finished product, users are smiling, as it looks pretty good.

As we are interested in how our readers view this new OS release from Microsoft, we decided to create an extensive survey and find answers to questions like: How do you think the OS will be called?; Are you going to update to the new MS OS?; and many others.

For a thorough breakdown of the results of our survey, don’t hesitate to explore our thorough guide on this topic.

The survey conclusions have been extracted out of the answers of 6052 users from across the globe, with more results coming from the US, but the UK, India, Canada, and Australia being close behind.

That being said, the results come as a conclusion of thousands of people from 152 countries across the planet.

How do I enable Dark Mode?

You don’t have to worry at all, because activating this feature on the new operating system is just as easy as it was on the previous version.

The easiest way to do so is by simply right-clicking anywhere on the desktop, in order to open the tiny menu. Once you did so, select the last option available, which is Personalize.

The next step is to click on the Colors tab, and then select the dropdown menu on the right, which contains the three available theme possibilities, such as Light, Dark and Custom.

All that is left now is for you to exit the Settings menu and enjoy your PCs new look. Note that Dark Mode is also a great wat to cope with spending so many hours in front of the PC, as it is easier on the eyes.
