I have many friends who love dark colors. And I also have many friends who don’t. WordPress provides several admin color schemes to choose from. By default, it is set at Dark.

If you would like to change your color schemes to something less gloomy or colorful, we have a solution for that.

So today lets teach you how to change the color scheme in your admin dashboard.

Steps to change your admin color scheme

Changing your admin color scheme is incredibly simple.

  • Go to your admin Dashboard.
  • Hover over the Users option available way down your Dashboard bar. Additional options will arise such as All users, New user, and Your Profile.

  • Click on All Users. You will now see a list of users who are the admins of your website. We have no other admin except myself, so rest assured if you have more admins.

  • Click on your username and you will be directed to your profile settings.
  • Here, you can see a list of personalization options such as Visual Editor, Syntax Highlighting, Admin Color Scheme, Keyboard shortcuts, Proofreading, Toolbar and Post by email options.
  • Currently, WordPress has seven admin color schemes which come along with the installation: Light, Blue Coffee, Ectoplasm, Midnight, Ocean, and Sunrise.
  • Click on your desired scheme.

You can see the changes in real-time. For example, I have chosen Sunrise.

  • Scroll down to the very end and click on the Update Profile button.
