How to enable a Dark Theme on elementary OS 5.1 Hera

Today we are looking at how to enable a dark theme in Elementary OS 5.1.  The app/ additional settings which we are going to install to enable the dark theme has many other features as well, so have a look at them!  Enjoy!

Here is a quick run-through of the commands.  The first command will install a package to enable you to apps PPAs to your system (a PPA is a software repository).  In the next command, we will add the PPA and in the end, we install the package which enables us to add minimize and maximize buttons.  All three of the commands are needed.  

Commands Used: 
sudo apt install software-properties-common
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:philip.scott/elementary-tweaks
sudo apt install elementary-tweaks
