You can switch your selected theme or your default settings post initial setup. To change your theme, you launch the Options dialog from the Tools menu, as shown in Figure 2.5. You select the Environment category from the tree view on the left side of the dialog. Under Environment you choose the General options. This gives you access to the color theme (see top right-side of Figure 2.5). The Visual Studio theme options are Light, Blue, and Dark. This book uses the Light theme. The Dark theme provides a high-contrast visual theme (black background with brighter text). The Blue theme looks similar to prior versions of Visual Studio.
