(1) Press the Windows+ I keys to open the Settings menu.
(2) Select Personalization on the left side pane.

For some users, the above methods may not have worked to bring the dark theme. In those situations, they can try any of the iTunes alternatives, which come with similar features and functionalities. Applications like Syncios, Clementine, and Dr.Fone come with a built-in dark theme.
Syncios is the best third-party iPhone managing tool. You will get a lot of features and customization options, including dark mode. The best thing about Syncios is that you will get dedicated apps for dedicated purposes. There are separate Syncios tools for Data Recovery, iOS & Android Managers, Data Transfer, and so on. You will get both video tutorials and how-to articles on how to use the app effectively. But it comes with a cost. All the tools available in SynciOS start at $34.95 per year.
Waltr is one of the best iTunes alternatives. Developed by Softorino, Waltr is an advanced media management tool available for both Windows and Mac PCs. In the free version, the features available in the tool are minimal. But, with the Waltr Pro version, you will get all the advanced features along with the dark mode. Using the Waltr Pro, you can convert AVI files to MP4 with ease.
Clementine is not as powerful as Syncios but is a perfect alternative for iTunes. It is a powerful music player that has the ability to sync between iPhone and iPad. Clementine is an open-source platform, you can get plugins and addons from GitHub and install them on Clementine. With that, you can easily get the dark theme plugin and integrate it with Clementine’s music player.
VOX Music Player
If you use the VOX Music Player, you don’t need the dark mode feature. Because the app itself follows a dark UI by default. If you are an avid user of the dark theme, VOX is the best app for you. The app is available for both Windows and Mac PCs. The free version itself offers a clean and neat dark UI. If you want more features, you can get the Premium version, which costs $4.99 per month.
