There are a number of themes that you can choose depending on your taste and experience with other IDEs. If JetBrains Rider is your first IDE, we suggest one of the following themes:
Rider Light: Default light theme
Rider Dark: Default dark theme
High contrast: Theme designed for users with color vision deficiency
It is also possible to create your own UI themes for JetBrains Rider and customize the built-in themes. For more information, see IntelliJ Platform SDK Documentation.
