After seeing those cool demos of Android Studio showing the neat-looking dark theme, the default theme that Android Studio downloads with can be a little disappointing.
If you haven’t seen it, here’s Android Studio set to the Darcula theme.
To get the Darcula theme, first open the Android Studio Settings dialog
- Select File on the Android Studio menu
- Then select Settings
Once on the Settings screen just…
- Highlight Appearence
- Click on the Theme dropdown and select Darcula
- Click OK
You’ll be prompted to restart Android Studio. Allow the restart and there you have it. The great look of Android Studio in Darcula.
