Feeling colorful?

Some days my eyes are tired and other days I am just bored with a white background and black text. On these days I go and set my MATLAB Desktop background and foreground colors to something different. I usually like the soothing colors of a light blue background with black text.

To change the colors of the desktop, go to the File menu -> Preferences. Select “Colors” in the preferences tree:

Unselect the checkbox “Use system colors” and then set the Text color and Background color to your favorite colors and hit the OK button:

If you are feeling adventurous or like you need something brighter you can set it to have a yellow background and hot pink text [1]:
