Microsoft Edge now lets you create custom themes

Microsoft now has an answer to the lack of themes in Edge. You can now visit the Chrome Web Store and install any theme you like on Edge, or you can add Microsoft’s only official theme from the Edge add-ons Store. The Edge Add-ons store is likely to get more themes in the future, at the moment, like Chrome, Edge now lets you create your own custom themes, offering multiple accent colors.

In addition to the system’s default light and dark themes, Microsoft is bringing more theme options to Edge to customize the browser. The feature available in Canary allows you to apply multiple colors to the Edge browser.

Create custom themes in the Edge browser

  1. Launch the Edge browser
  2. Visit the edge://flags page
  3. Look for “Enable selector for color-based themes”
    Enable color-based theme flag border selector
  4. Click on the drop-down arrow and select “Enabled”
  5. Restart the browser.
  6. Now click on the three dots icon, select “Settings”
  7. Select “Appearance”
  8. In Customize Browser > Default Theme > Accent Color
  9. Select an accent color to apply.
