Android Studio is a great IDE for Android development. It has tons of features to make your coding life easier including code completion, syntax highlighting, and the ability to preview live changes in the emulator.

However, it can be overwhelming with so many themes available!

Android Studio has many different themes. There are 9 themes in the default installation of Android Studio.

For example, there is a Darcula theme that people who are stylish might like because it is not too bright or dark.

That’s why I wrote this post – to help you find one that will work best for you.

What is a theme in Android Studio?

Android Studio Theme is the look and feel of an android app development environment. That means if you change the theme in Android studio, your code editor, terminal, tool window, etc will take a new design like dark or light or any other color.

If you want to change the whole android studio theme (i.e If you don’t like the default Blue(Dark) theme in Android Studio), follow the below steps:

For Changing Theme go File –> Setting   or by Clicking Keyboard Shortcut (Ctrl+Alt+s) or Click blow image icon :

After doing this Open Setting Window see [–IDE Setting–]  by Selected  [Appearance] on the appearance you will see Theme: option-click the drop-down box you will see 9 themes.

Now you select your choice able theme.
