Luckily its quite simple to customise your environment in Visual Studio 2010, right down the the minute of details. Simply open up the preferences through the menu: ‘Tools –> Options –> Environment Fonts and Colors’.
It’s a good idea to back up your settings first (‘Import and Export Settings’) before playing around. This will ensure you can always revert back to your original settings at any point without fear.
A fantastic little developer community has popped up recently over at http://studiostyl.es/ where you can browse and download hundreds of pre-rolled themes that other people have already built and tested for longevity.
The top-rated schemes are a great place to start if you’re keen to try something new without spending a lot of time on tweaking everything just so.
Download a trial of Visual Studio.
