Windows 10 already has a dark theme, but now it becomes a really bright theme. Interface elements like the taskbar, Start menu, and Print dialog box are lit, and Microsoft also created a new desktop background for it.
This feature appears in Windows 10's next update, code name 19h1 and is expected to be released around April 2019. It is available today for Windows Insiders in Fixed Ring as part of Insider build 18282. This release of Windows will make your computer faster.
Now that you turn on the light, everything becomes bright. Do not worry, but the old behavior with a dark taskbar, dark start menu and light application window are still standard after upgrading. Microsoft will not suddenly change your desktop theme.
The Settings app now has separate options for "Standard Windows Mode" and "Default Appearance". With Windows set to dark and app mode set to turn on, you use old default theme. With both set to light or dark, use a clean light or dark theme.
Microsoft has also added a new standard wallpaper. You can enable it on the Insider building by going to Settings> Customization> Themes and selecting "Windows Light".
And to match everything else, the Shop Manager print dialog has a new light theme as well. In the past, it was always dark.
Microsoft has also made some other changes. For Windows 10 Professional users, the "Pause Updates" feature is available directly on the Settings page> Update and Security> Windows Update, which makes it easier to find and pause updates.
Windows can now automatically set your active hours to avoid restarting updates during the hours you usually use your computer. You do not need to manually set them up if you enable this feature.
The new modern screenshot tool is added to the October 2018 update also gets some improvements. It can now take timed screenshots and screenshots of specific windows.
Microsoft also solved the file association issue we reported, and you should now be able to set any app again by default.
