  • Light or dark theme is chosen by the app. It isn't related to Windows' overall theme as controlled by the Personalization control panel.

    The exception is for the High Contrast themes. If the user chooses a High Contrast theme then your app should follow suit. The standard controls and styles will do this automatically, but if you have any custom coloring you may need to do so explicitly. What exactly you need to do will depend on if you are using HTML, Xaml, or custom DirectX. See Supporting high contrast themes (there's a switch for Xaml if needed).
