Hello Blender folks. Today I am going to show you how to change the theme of your Blender 2.6x with the pre-loaded themes inside Blender. Many of you may know about this feature already, but some do not. This tip is for them.

Fire up Blender 2.62 or later versions.

Press “Ctrl + Alt + U” to open up the User Preferences

Click on the Themes tab

On the upper-left-hand side you will get something called “Presets:” (Marked on the image). Click on it and choose the theme you want. This is the sample of Blender 2.4x theme.

At last click on the “Save as Default” button(marked in the image) and boom you are done

Thanks for reading the boring tutorial!

  2. Yeah, it’s pretty cool.

    Now do you have any idea how I can save my custom theme for someone else to use on their Blender install?

    1. One thing I can really say that, you can download the Blender theme manager to do that. Here’s the link: http://wiki.blender.org/index.php/Extensions:2.5/Py/Scripts/System/Theme_manager

      Then copy and paste the file as directed:
      Blender Directory>2.62>scripts>addons

      Then from the User Preferences enable the addon and that’s it. The next time you visit the User Preferences>Themes tab you will get the button to save your theme. Thanks for reading the tutorial.

  3. How can save, share and import my themes?
    In the older versions was a script to save and load themes. I dont want rework for every new release my lighter theme for all the subwindows of blender. Do you have any tips?
