YouTube 'Dark Mode': How to turn on the secret feature

"Dark mode turns the light surfaces of the page dark, creating an experience ideal for night", writes YouTube on the Dark Mode page.

Google has been flirting with a "Dark Mode" in Android for a little while now, but it looks like YouTube is taking that experience to the web.

Reddit user /u/_paul- discovered the feature and provided instructions for enabling it on PC.

Paste in the following command: document.cookie="VISITOR_INFO1_LIVE=fPQ4jCL6EiE" into the console window and press enter.

Tuchel is sure to rotate his fourth-placed squad to try to help give those worst affected by the attack time to recover. But European football's governing body rejected the claim, insisting that both clubs had agreed to play on Wednesday.

Click your YouTube profile picture, select Dark Mode from the dropdown, and toggle the switch to enable the mode.

To get started, you will first have to check if your operating system is running the latest version of Google Chrome.

Open the Chrome developer tools tab.

Refresh your internet browser just like you would do on Windows 10 and you will be able to see the Dark Mode option in the settings menu on the top-right corner.

If you've ever sat in the dark with a bright laptop open, you're likely familiar with the headache that habit can induce.
