Visual Studio color schemes – Its time for a makeover

Posted in Tips, Visual Studio by Sumit Thomas on March 23, 2011

http://studiostyl.es/ is a great website where you can browse for hundreds of color schemes to change the background and text colors of your Visual Studio IDE. It works for both Visual Studio 2008 and 2010. You can also create and submit your own scheme or download and rate schemes submitted by others.

Once you have picked your favorite scheme, download it to your Visual Studio settings folder C:\Users\[user_name]\Documents\visual studio 2010\settings

To apply the scheme go to Tools -> Import and Export Settings menu and follow these steps

Once you complete the steps, you will see a brand new color scheme applied to your Visual Studio text editor.

Now don’t be surprised if you find a fellow developer’s Visual Studio with a Barbie girl scheme 😉

    Spam – Combat enables all emails through which can be for the whitelist,
    and it’s going to mark for deletion or automatically delete
    all of the which might be about the blacklist.

    However, no all encompassing anti spam law may be passed yet.

    If they refuse, think about why a legit company who would like thousands of one’s
    dollars won’t send which you simple document that clearly lists that which you’re set for.
    Too often, people get distracted by every one of the ‘Goodies’ a treadmill offers them that they can miss the very fact the treadmill doesn’t need the essential essentials of a quality unit.
    Bathroom caulking or grout is dirty: Put this on the must do list.
