Personally I loved the VS2008 theme, so when I switched to VS2010 I saw the looks was vastly changed. It took sometime for me to get used to this for my eyes. Before I came to know this is just a default theme and we can customize this however we want.

Yes you can download the Free Theme Editor by Matthew Johnson and customize the Visual Studio themes, after you installed you might be looking from where you can do that, so don’t get surprised, you will get a new menu very next to your View Menu and you are ready to go.


By Default you will get the following themes

  1. Windows XP Silver
  2. Windows Classic
  3. Windows XP Emerald
  4. Windows XP Autumn
  5. Windows XP Olive
  6. Windows XP Blue
  7. Windows Aero
  8. Windows XP Blue
  9. Default Visual Studio 2010 Theme

But you can go ahead and customize, make your own themes and export and import them and also you can download lots of other themes too from here
