Here's how to change the Chrome theme using the desktop version of Google Chrome on all operating systems, as well as on the Chrome mobile app for Android and iOS.

How to Change Themes in Chrome

You can browse for themes and install them directly from the online Chrome Web Store:

Select the three dots button in the top-right corner of Chrome and choose Settings from the drop-down menu.

Select Themes under Appearance to open the Chrome Web Store.

Preview a theme by selecting the thumbnail, then select Add to Chrome when you find one you like. Chrome will install the theme automatically, and your prior theme will be removed.

Chrome does not store your themes, so when you change Chrome themes, the old one is no longer accessible and must be reloaded from the Chrome Web Store.

How to Remove Themes in Chrome

You can uninstall a theme from Chrome if you no longer wish to use it and want to go back to the default:

Select the three dots button in the top-right corner of Chrome and choose Settings from the drop-down menu.

Select Reset to Default under Appearance. The classic Google Chrome theme will be restored.

You can even make your own Google Themes and share them with others through the Chrome Web Store.

Changing Chrome's Color Scheme

The themes control Chrome's appearance. You cannot independently modify colors apart from a theme package. The only way to change Google Chrome's background colors is to change the theme.

Some operating systems override Chrome's behavior, setting specific colors for various user-interface elements. For example, Windows supports an accent color, and different Linux desktop managers customize every element of a typical window.

How to Change Themes in the Chrome Mobile App

The mobile version of Chrome doesn't have as many options as the desktop version, but you can switch between light and dark themes. Chrome will automatically switch to the dark theme when you turn on Android Dark mode or dark mode for iPhones and iPads.
