How do I remove light from my viewport so it's completely black?

I have deleted the light and adjusted world settings. However, there still seems to be some light.

By default Material Preview Shading uses a different environment and lighting than the Rendered Shading so it ignores the world settings.

In the Options tab, you can choose to use scene world and lighting .

    $\begingroup$ That setting is for Material Preview shading. The rendered view will use the settings for the "world", as well as the lighting of the scene. $\endgroup$
