Task Manager can be used to view and manage your processes, performance statistics, app history, startup apps, users, processes details, and services in Windows 11.

Starting with Windows 11 build 22626.891 and Windows 11 build 25247, Microsoft has added the ability to use your preferred theme in Task Manager regardless of the active theme in Windows. You can select to use a light, dark, or system setting app theme for Task Manager.

This tutorial will show you how to change the Task Manager app theme to light mode, dark mode, or use system setting for your account in Windows 11.


Here's How:

1 Open Task Manager (Ctrl+Shift+Esc).

2 Click/tap on Settings on the bottom left side of Task Manager. (see screenshot below)

3 Under App theme, select (dot) Light, Dark, or Use system setting (default) for what you want. (see screenshots below)

If you select Use system setting, then the Task Manager app theme will vary depending on if you selected light or dark for Windows mode and App mode.


Currently the Task Manager app theme will not show properly if you do not have both Windows mode and App mode set to light or dark.
