How to change background pane color

Coreysan 1,651 Reputation points

In visual studio 2019, I added the extension for SSRS Report projects. When I open a solution,
the primary background for the workspace is a light blue, based on the color scheme of blue.

I'd like to go into Tools/Options/Fonts and Colors and look up the main pane workspace background color and darken it.
Do you know what Setting and/or Display item to choose?

    Hi @Coreysan ,

    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A!

    For your requirement, you can change the default color of entire Visual Studio’s user interface with the following steps: Tools > Option > Environment > General > Color Theme.
    If you want to change the background color of code editor, you can go to Tools > Options > Environment > Fonts and Colors > Display items: > set the Item background: of Plain Text.

    For more details, you can refer to: How to: Personalize the Visual Studio IDE and the editor.
