I would love to change the highlight color of the window being used when working in Blender. Now, when I hover over it, it highlights just a tiny bit. Is it possible to highlight it with different color or at lest more of the white highlight that it currently uses? I wasnt able to find the proper setting for it in Settings - Themes.. enter image description here

Thank you! Martin

You can edit your theme using Edit > Preferences > Themes. From there, go to each panel, then open the Theme space dropdown, and set the Header colour:

Header colour

You'll have to do this for each menu, I don't think there's a setting for all the menus.

Theme docs: https://docs.blender.org/manual/en/latest/editors/preferences/themes.html

  • $\begingroup$ Thank you, this helps, however, I was more after editting the effect where if you hover over the Header, it highlights a little. But it highlights only.. very little. It would be great to see the highlight more clearly or in different color :-) $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ You have asked a hard thing! I think it's actually dulling them down when not hovered. Have you seen this? blenderartists.org/t/… $\endgroup$ Commented Oct 13, 2020 at 16:01
