Is there a dark mode for Postman?

Yes, Postman comes with a built-in dark mode for your working pleasure. Unlike most applications, the Postman dark mode is an authentic dark environment with all buttons and other visual elements colored. The Postman dark mode also automatically lowers brightness, increases contrast, and makes viewing easier on the eyes. In addition, navigating to the Postman dark theme is relatively straightforward. So you can quickly switch on and off the dark and light themes at different times of the day to enjoy the right work environment for you at any time.

How to enable Postman dark mode on desktop?

Enabling the Postman dark mode is easy. You can do so when setting up Postman for the first time, or subsequently before every task. Follow the steps below to enable Postman dark mode on your desktop:


  • In, go to the header and select the settings icon. Then tap Settings. You can also use the shortcut Ctrl + Comma (,) or ⌘+Comma (,)
  • Next to the General Window, you’ll find Themes.
  • Navigate to Themes and choose either the light or dark theme. Postman instantly changes the background, giving you a preview of how the dark mode would appear.

Depending on how your Postman interface appears, here is an alternative step to follow:

  • Go to the header and select “Preferences ⌘
  • This takes you directly to the horizontal navigation menu
  • Go to the Themes section and toggle to enable light or dark themes.
