I am used to the old school version of Photoshop, back from 2011, which is a dark background. I just upgraded. The newer one is gray and bothers my eyes when I'm editing. How can I change PS to a dark theme?

Right click on a spot on the empty work area, and you can change the color to Grey, Black. and Custom.

. . . . Just to be clear, you can only change the color of the canvas for an open file.  If you right-click on an empty workspace, nothing will happen.  I believe it was different back in the days of Elements 8(?), when you could change the whole workspace area theme.

Faststone image viewer has a dark mode. Strangley it is free and Adobes software being a paid program has no such mode. I have both programs on my PC and I love the timeline slider in elements organizer, but the dark theme in Faststone lets me focus better, and it is free. my 2 cents
