OneNote is an incredibly popular notetaking program from Microsoft which is used by millions of customers around the world. While OneNote features a variety of tools like the ability to draw, it doesn't feel as unified with the operating system as a whole. For example, in its current state, it lacks a dark mode. This means that the application is always incredibly bright, no matter if your operating system is customized to go easy on the eyes.

Luckily, that's about to change very soon. According to a report by Aggiornamenti Lumia, Microsoft is adding a dark theme to OneNote very soon. It's unclear when this feature will launch, but it looks like it's already rolling out to a select group of Windows Insiders.

As you can see from the screenshot published by Aggiornamenti Lumia, the dark theme changes the look of the entire program. Unless you open a new page to take notes on, all you can see are the black menus and sections.

Aside from dark mode, OneNote appears to be getting improved nativation. Microsoft's Vice President of Notes and Tasks Laura Buttler said a "new majorly improved navigation" system is coming as well, and that the screenshot was from an older build on Twitter. Hopefully the changes will make OneNote even easier to use.

OneNote is available on a variety of platforms from Windows to Mac, so it's quite a versatile tool. You can easily carry over your progress from one device to another. Be sure to give it a go if you haven't already.
