I have been trying to figure out how to change the color of the menu background (Please see image)

I have set my Windows 10 to dark theme, and I can't find what option to change it. 

Is it through Windows or is it within Premiere Pro?

Thank you in advance.

Hi there,

Thanks for writing in. I find this an interesting suggestion. However, this feature is not available in Adobe Premiere Pro. I would suggest you to add your voice here: https://adobe-video.uservoice.com/forums/911233-premiere-pro/suggestions/38144161-allow-editors-to-c...

PLEASE MAKE THIS CHANGE or at least give the option, everyone on windows wants this change. It was changed with the update on mac already but not windows.

 

The entire program is dark except the menu which is the opposite of dark

I get your point. Did you request for this feature on the Uservoice page I shared above? Could you share a link with me?

 

Thanks,

Shivangi

That section is actually part of your Windows 'personalization' setup/options.

Usually you would be correct, as this does fix the problem for most software.
Unfortunately it doesn't work with Premiere, the ribbon remains glaringly white even after changing it.

(For anybody curious to test it, hit the Windows key (or click Start) and type "Settings".
Then type "Colours" and click "Choose accent colour." Scroll down and make sure the box that says "Title bars and windows borders" is ticked, and make sure you have selected a dark colour pallete in the "Windows colours" box.)

Solution:

  1. Go to Windows 10 Settings
  2. Personalisation > Colours
  3. Pick a colour (I use dark purple)
  4. Scroll to the bottom and check the box titled: Title bars and window borders
  5. Done.

While this does solve the same problem for other software, unfortunately it doesn't fix the problem in Premiere.

So far the closest I can get it is by hitting ctrl and backslash within Premiere to hide the top part, and then auto-hiding the windows taksbar. If anybody finds a fully working solution, please let me know!
