Note: Theme settings is currently in beta and subject to change.
For choice and flexibility in how and when you use GitHub, you can configure theme settings to change how GitHub looks to you. You can choose from two themes, light and dark, or you can configure GitHub to follow your system settings. Some developers use dark theme for personal preference, to reduce power consumption on certain devices, or to reduce eye strain in low-light conditions.
- In the user settings sidebar, click Appearance.
- Under "Theme", select a theme preference.
