Hello I would like to know if it's possible to set the pdf viewer background from microsoft edge beta to dark mode, since the light mode is really annoying.

@CP_LucciI wonder if Dark mode is turned on your PC if not turn it on and see if it works if already on please tell me!

If that didn't work follow these steps.

1. Press the Menu button. (circled red)

2.Press the menu button and then press the settings button

OP is talking about Edge beta (Chromium based), your gifs and pics are about the Edge legacy (EdgeHTML)

Hi@CP_Lucci 

 

this is a good suggestion to be implemented but currently the new Edge insider browser can't change the background of the PDF files.

 

so for example when viewing a PDF

you can't change the white background in the PDF file itself.

you can only change the sides to either white or black and it can happen from the Edge settings:

edge://settings/appearance

 

again this is a good suggestion and I hope developers implement it.

there are 3rd party PDF viewers such as Adobe and Foxit PDF readers that support this feature.

@Glucksritter  I already did that but my problem is that when I open a pdf the windows is white even in darkmode. Maybe it's a bug?

How did you get the sides of the pdf to be dark? when I open it it shows in light mode even when dark mode is activated?
