I downloaded the NetBeans for my expedition in Ruby on Rails and first thing i wanted to do was change the background to black. I searched internet as i am not a very big fan of NetBeans (though i should admire the best IDE). Well i couldn’t find much of help online, so i figured out through the offline help and wanted to put something in here, so that more of users can gain that quickly. Follow the steps to do the same.

  1. Click Fonts & Colors in the Options window.
  2. Click Duplicate next to the Profile drop-down list to open the Create New Profile dialog box.
  3. Type a name in the Create New Profile dialog box.
  4. Modify the settings in the Options window.
  5. Click OK to close the Options window.

Now you can have whatever color you want to.

Note: You can also switch to the Norway Today or City Lights theme if you want the black background with other default settings.

cheers !!
Realin !
