If you notice that the font color remains black and unreadable after you switch to Dark Mode on your Windows 10 computer, then this post may help you. After the switch, fonts are supposed to go white, but in rare situations, they do not. It’s likely that the transition to dark mode is incomplete, some system file corruption, or maybe it is some bug causing this issue.
Windows 10 Dark Mode Font color remains Black
If Dark Mode in Windows 10 makes fonts unreadable, due to black text and the font color continues to remain black, here are a few ideas you could try to fix the issue:
- Restart Windows Explorer.
- Open Settings, turn off, and then again turn on Dark Mode both windows and apps and see.
- Right-click inside the folder > View. Change the view for the display of items and see if that helps.
- Run an SFC scan.
- Go to Settings > Personalization > Themes and make sure the Color option is set to Automatic.
- Update Windows 10 to the most recent stable build.
- Perform a Clean Boot and then re-apply Dark Mode. This is more of a workaround rather than a fix because in this state the startup programs remain disabled.
You can try them in no particular order and see which works for you.
I hope one of these suggestions helps you. If you have any other ideas, do share them in the comments.
Dark Mode is a setting that turns your bright white screen 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. A study by Google found that you’ll use 60% less energy on a device that has Dark Mode enabled.
You can use the Dark Mode feature in a couple of ways on your laptop or desktop. The feature can be rolled out across the entire user interface, on all apps, on specific apps only, and even on webpages.
