As many of you probably already know, in Windows 10, we have a dark theme and a light theme. Thanks to them, we can change the intensity of the screen illumination depending on the moment, although this is something that we have to do manually on the computer. But, if you want it to switch from one topic to another automatically, there is a way, although it is not a function that is present in a normal way.

It is something that we have to activate, making use of administrator permissions in Windows 10. In this way, depending on the time it is, the computer will automatically change from the light theme to the dark theme, and vice versa.

Windows 10: switch between Light and Dark mode automatically

We have to log in to Windows 10 with administrator permissions. Once this is done, inside the computer, we have to find and go to the task scheduler. You can write the name in the search engine, and it will come out directly. In this programmer, we look at the panel on the right, and we give it to create basic tasks. We have to give it a name and a description.

It must be something that will help us identify it at all times. After going to the next window, we give this option to be activated daily. Then, we are allowed to configure the time we want to enable this dark mode. You can set this to your liking since it depends on each user.

In the next window, we are asked to enter a field called program or script. We must write reg in said box. While in the option called add arguments, which comes out just below, we have to enter the following:

add HKCU SOFTWARE Microsoft Windows CurrentVersion Themes Personalize / v AppsUseLightTheme / t REG_DWORD / d 0 / f

With these steps, we have already achieved that dark theme is automatically activated on Windows 10 computer At the indicated time. It will be something I do on a daily basis. We can do the same with the light theme. Only in this case, in the section to add arguments, we have to enter:

add HKCU SOFTWARE Microsoft Windows CurrentVersion Themes Personalize / v AppsUseLightTheme / t REG_DWORD / d 1 / f
