@hussain5416_ I guess the flag forces the dark theme on the web contents irrespective of the theme. It does not takes the current theme into consideration.

@hussain5416_ Thanks for your feedback. In an ideal scenario: 1) how would you want this to work? And 2) could you see any instances where it would be helpful to have that universally dark theme, even if a user had previously selected a light theme?
And as one of our diligent Insiders, I'm sure you're well aware of this, but I want to gently reset expectations that anything behind a flag is still in an unfinished testing/experimental phase, even if it's been there for a while. :)

@fawkes Google Chrome has this down right. If your Windows 10 Theme is set to dark and you go to google.com you see the site in dark because they support dark theme in google.com
But if you go to a site that doesn't support dark theme it will not show it.

@fawkes I use the force dark flag all the time and it's the one reason I recommend it to others. example - I run dark mode on my mac (or on windows as well, same thing).
SharePoint online sites are designed with normal light themes, because most of the company want them that way. They don't want to use the dark themes.
By using the force flag, I can see my SPO in dark mode while everyone else stays in light mode.
Even if my OS was in light mode I'd want it this way as well. There are some sites that don't like being forced very nicely, but I can deal with those.
