Windows Auto Dark
A program that sets/toggles the Windows 10 dark theme. This can be done with PowerShell, but it causes a window to show for a second. Running this program won't show a window at all. This makes it particularly useful for changing the theme automatically.
Compile the program or download the executable from the Github releases page. Place the executable anywhere that users can access it.
If the program is run without any arguments, then it will toggle the dark theme
setting. You can pass in one of two arguments:
dark. Only the
first argument will be read in, all others will be ignored.
Use Windows Task Scheduler to run this automatically.
has detailed instructions on how to do so. Just use the path to this program's
executable in place of the path to PowerShell and
dark in place of
the PowerShell arguments.
How It Works
This works by setting the registry key
0 for dark or
1 for light.
