Change color of Visual Studio Text Editor

 

Every young developer likes to play around with the tools they use for development! Moreover we have always learned programming in Turbo C compiler which has a blue background. But Visual studio is altogether different! And what if you are a black hat? You must be liking Black background most of the time?
So want some change in visual studio text editor? Then follow bellow mentioned steps its plain and simple!
1.       Open Visual Studio (for me its Visual Studio 2010)
2.       Now Go to menu bar on top and select Tools - > Options - > Environment - > Fonts and Colors
3.       Now you must be getting a window similar to this!


4.       Now once you get this window try changing the Item foreground color to White and Item background color to Black Now for trial just click on Ok!
5.       Now you should be getting the background color and foreground color just as shown in bellow screen!
  6.       Now once you have mastered all the option you can simply try your own combination!
7.       Otherwise you can stick up to bellow mentioned combination
a.      Plain Text – White
b.      Line Numbers – Silver
c.       Comments  – 213,0,213 {R,G,B} (Purple)
d.      Identifier  – 253,223,57 {R,G,B}  (Mustard)
e.       Keyword  – 244,122,0 {R,G,B}  (Orange)
f.        Operator – White
g.      String – Lime
