How to Change Color Theme in Microsoft Edge

Here's how to change Color Theme in Microsoft Edge.

Microsoft Edge comes with 14 built-in theme colors. The new option has become available in the browser starting in Microsoft Edge version 89.0.731.0. Using it, you can apply one of the offered colors to the browser window, its toolbar, tabs and the new tab page background.


The custom color theme feature works with the default Edge themes, which include the light, dark, and 'system default' options. The latter follows the app theme set in Personalization. By adding custom color themes, Microsoft has made the visual look of the Edge app more flexible and personal.
