#1 Launch the Microsoft Word on your Windows device and tap the File menu.
#2 Click the Account option.
#3 Under the Office Theme section, select Dark Gray theme.
#4 Upon selecting the option, the dark theme will be applied on your Microsoft Word document.
If the above steps failed to apply the dark theme, you can enable it by
#1 Click the File menu again and select Options menu.
#2 Find the Office Theme section and change the theme to Dark Gray.
Note – By enabling dark mode on Microsoft Word, the background of all Microsoft applications that you installed on the PC will change into a dark theme. At the same time, if you have enabled a dark theme on other MS Office apps, it will apply to the MS Word automatically.
Unfortunately, the documents that you create on the Word will use the default white background and black font.
