If you’re staring at your computer screen all day, it is highly recommended that you enable Dark Mode for your eyes. Dark Mode is a setting that turns your bright white screen a little darker. This means most of your Windows apps and features will have white text against a black or gray background. This makes it a lot easier to read and is said to help with concentration. Plus, a study by Google found that you’ll use 60% less energy on a device that has Dark Mode enabled. Ready to switch over to the dark side? Here’s how to enable Dark Mode in Windows 10:
