Chrome 74 is officially released today for Windows, Mac and Linux, which marks the introduction of a new dark mode for Windows 10 users. The same dark mode came last month in macOS with Chrome 73, and the update Today includes automatic support for Windows 10. Chrome will automatically select the theme to match if a dark mode is enabled in Windows 10. The final result makes Chrome look almost identical to the browser's darker incognito menu bars .
While Google enables this new dark mode in Windows, the company has not yet activated it completely for all Chrome users. "I can confirm that we are implementing this feature for a small number of Chrome M74 users now, and that it will be more available in the near future," explains a Chrome community administrator. If you do not want to wait for Google to fully enable it, there is a shortcut trick to force dark mode:
- Find the shortcut you use to start Chrome and open the properties
- Add "–force-dark- mode "Until the end of the destination location (without quotes)
- Start Chrome and dark mode will be enabled.If you normally start Chrome from an anchor item in the taskbar, you should start it with the shortcut trick and then return to release / pin for this to be maintained
Chrome has always offered support for themes to enable a dark mode, but this official mode now means that context menus have an appropriate theme in the browser. series of other changes that are not so obvious to detect visually.Chrome's animation features can now be disabled to reduce motion sickness, and there is a new flag to prevent sites from eb Detect the Incognito Mode.
Chrome 74 is available for download from the Google Chrome site, or from Help> About Chrome if you are already using the browser.
