Using OneNote Dark mode in Teams


Hi All

I am using Dark mode throughout the Microsoft app universe. This includes Teams. All is good except when I open OneNote. It seems that even though I have Dark mode turned on in OneNote, when I open it in Teams it opens in Light mode. I realize I can 'Open in app' from the menu bar to work in Dark mode, but it would be nice to stay within the Teams shell to work in Class or Staff Notebooks.


Is there a work around for this? Is this something Microsoft is working on?

Thanks for your insights

Thanks for your response.


I do have Teams in Dark mode. I also have OneNote in Dark mode. Unfortunately, when I open a class or staff notebook in Teams (which is a OneNote notebook), OneNote opens in light mode, and there is no way to change it to Dark mode.


I use Chrome in Dark mode too. Since OneNote opens in the browser version first, I thought that it would open in Dark mode...No.



Thats really a pitty and should be fixed! :)
