Google Chrome has recently been updated to version 74 on all computer systems, including MacOS, Windows and Linux. With the new Google Chrome 74, Windows users can activate the long-awaited Dark Mode mode. This changes the user interface, menus and downloads in Google Chrome to a more comfortable night-time interface.
This mode is not yet fully activated, but if you are using Windows 10, there is a way to activate the night mode in your browser. Some instructions should be added to the shortcut path, so you can have two complete shortcuts for Google Chrome, one for the casual browser, and the other for the browser with the dark interface. To do this, all you need to do is modify the shortcut file on your desktop, following the instructions below:
- Right-click the Google Chrome shortcut and go to the Properties option
- Add a space and type "-force-dark-mode" without quotes at the end of the target bar
- Save your changes
- Open Google Chrome using a shortcut
Google Chrome 74 also provides an option to disable kinetic effects that can cause motion sickness for some users. There is also a policy change to prevent websites from opening new pages while trying to close them. Please check the link below to see what has changed.
