How to enable dark theme for search results in Google

Google now lets you search with the dark theme, and here's how to enable the option on your Windows 10 device.

Google search dark theme

Google now has dark theme support for its homepage and search results. The new dark color scheme is slowly rolling out to users, and it works like on most applications by adjusting the appearance settings for the website.

When enabled, the dark theme will be available for the homepage (which also includes a white Google logo), and the color scheme is also present for search results. If the option is available for you, the appearance settings will consist of three options, including “dark theme,” “light theme,” and “device default,” which allows Google.com to switch the theme automatically depending on the system color that you are using on Windows 10, macOS, and other supported systems.

In this guide, you will learn the steps to enable or disable the dark theme for Google.com and search results on Windows 10.
