How To Enable Duolingo Dark Mode On Desktop Or PC

How To Enable Duolingo Dark Mode Desktop Or PC Version

Do you want to know how you can enable the dark mode feature on Duolingo on any desktop device or even Windows 10?

The dark mode feature is mild to the eyes as opposed to the glaring bright theme that a majority of apps originally come with.

If you don’t like using the light theme on Duolingo, you can disable it in the “Settings”. But, how?

In this guide, you will see how you can enable the dark mode option on Duolingo on the desktop version in any browser including Microsoft Edge, and Mozilla Firefox.

How to Enable Duolingo Dark Mode on Desktop

To enable the dark mode feature on Duolingo using a desktop, you will need to install a simple program on your browser.

This is because as of the time of writing this guide, Duolingo doesn’t yet have an option for enabling the dark mode on desktops and PCs.

Maybe in the nearest future, they would, but right now we have to find a way to help ourselves by ourselves.

Moving on, for this tutorial we will be using the Chrome, Firefox, and Microsoft Edge browsers.

I will be listing all the tutorials for each browser below as the method for enabling the dark mode feature on them are a bit different.

Let’s get started.

How to Enable Duolingo Dark Mode on Desktop Using Google Chrome

If you are using the Google Chrome browser to access the Duolingo language app and you want to enable the dark mode feature, this is how you can do that by yourself.

1. Open the Google Chrome browser on your desktop or PC.

2. On the search bar, type in the following: “chrome://flags” and a list of options will appear.

3. Just ignore those list of options and type in the search box this term: “Auto Dark Mode for Web Contents” and click on the enter button.

4. From the term brought up by the search, you will see a drop-down list on the right, click on it and then select “Enabled”

5. Once you have selected “Enabled” you will see a pop-up message saying “Your changes will take effect the next time you relaunch Chrome” with a “Relaunch” button next to it.

6. Click on that “Relaunch” button and your Google Chrome browser will restart automatically this time all the websites you are visiting will be in dark mode including Duolingo.

How to Enable Duolingo Dark Mode on Desktop Using Mozilla Firefox

For Mozilla Firefox users who access Duolingo on the browser, you don’t need to do much to enable the dark mode feature.

All you need to do is to install an Add-on called Dark Reader and it will automatically turn every website you visit to appear in a dark theme.

Here is how to install the Dark Reader Add-on on the Firefox browser for Duolingo dark mode:

1. Open the Firefox browser on your desktop.

2. On the homepage, click on the hamburger menu at the top-right corner of your screen.

3. After you have clicked on the hamburger menu, a list of options should appear, click on “Add-ons”.

4. Next, click on “Get Add-ons” and in the search bar input “Dark Reader” and the “Enter” button to search.

5. Click on “Install” and your new Add-on will be downloaded on your Firefox browser; a small icon of your newly installed Dark Reader Add-on will then appear in the toolbar, this way you can click on it to enable and disable it whenever you like.

How to Enable Duolingo Dark Mode on Microsoft Edge Based On Chromium Browser

You would be surprised by how many people still use the Microsoft Edge browser, all I can say is that it is an okay browser but I don’t use it.

The Microsoft Edge based on Chromium browser is the newest version that was released in 2020, it is faster than the older versions and better.

However, if you want to enable the dark mode feature on this ME Chromium browser so that whenever you visit the Duolingo language app site, every theme will appear in dark mode then follow the steps below:

1. Open the Google Chrome browser on your desktop or PC.

2. On the search bar, type in the following: “edge://flags” and a list of options will appear.

3. Just ignore those list of options and type in the search box this term: “Dark Mode” and click on the enter button.

4. From the term brought up after the search, you will see a drop-down list on the right; next to it, click on it and then select “Enable”

5. Once you have selected “Enable”, restart your Microsoft Edge based on Chromium browser and automatically all the websites you are visiting henceforth will be in dark mode including Duolingo.

Conclusion

Recently a lot of sites have started including the option to see their sites in two different themes, dark and light.

And over time, the dark theme has become everyone’s favorite as I have mentioned it is mild in the eyes and beats the glaring light theme that I hate especially if you like working in a dark room.

It is quite surprising that Duolingo doesn’t yet have the option for desktop or PC users to enable the dark mode.

However, there is always a way, I have included in this guide, how you can enable the dark mode feature in Duolingo on a desktop or PC.
