In addition to light and dark themes, Microsoft Edge lets you customize the browser with 14 other built-in themes. You can also change the Edge look by getting themes from Edge Add-ons Store. The new Edge’s InPrivate browsing Mode isn’t completely dark unless you turn on dark mode in Windows or Mac. The menus still appear white when you visit the page. This to change, after Chrome.
InPrivate browsing Mode in new Microsoft Edge Chromium
Like many popular browsers. Microsoft Edge allows browsing in Private mode.
InPrivate Mode is not anonymous browsing, but it clears your browsing history, cookies, passwords, and other data when you close all InPrivate Windows.
The Collections, favorites, and downloads created will be kept, however.
Edge lets you search InPrivate mode with Bing with a dedicated search box.
Edge assures the information that identifies you will be removed when you submit a search query through Bing InPrivate Search.
Recently we reported Google Chrome added true dark mode for InCognito mode behind a flag.
The new feature is now available in Edge also as an experimental feature.

After that, you need to open a new InPrivate window and select an option in the InPrivate menu icon on the toolbar.
