Depends how cool the cool dark room is. To clear them quickly put them in the fridge, that will allow whats in suspension to drop out. I cold crash my beer prior to bottling, that way I can keep them at fermentation temperature to condition and still be clear.

How long do you crash cool for mate

I cool down to -1 or -2 C dependent on the strength of the beer. then it is only 2 days or so, but that is when the beer has dropped to that temp.

Likewise, always stick my FV in the coldest room in the house for 24-48hrs after fermentation has finished, so that it'll drop clear prior to bottling. There's still enough yeast there to generate CO2 despite it looking clear. I never bottle a cloudy beer.

Leave it alone, it will clear in time, you just have to wait sadly. As others have said, pop them in the fridge and it will help. Don’t worry if you get a chill haze it hasn’t gone cloudy again and will clear when it warms up a bit. Personally I wouldn’t touch it until a month after bottling as a minimum, then they should be about ready. I always found extract kit beers had a yeasty twang about them for up to a month or so, but they get much better the longer you leave them. As with any beer, time is key.
