The last 2 answers Are kind of in the good direction .BUT Still feels like ur don*t G**e a F***k , i spend my weeks at least 60 hours, that is 240 hours a month since vs2008 SP1 watching that anoying WHITE thing,
i am not even gonna talk about the days,
No i am even going to say sorry for my bad language, but i know 4 sure that 70% of the hardcore coders like it black, and i guess is the contrast
that makes my eyes tired and een gives me headaches,
i pay enough for this software, just one question ,
if you would buy a new Mercedes, all black or blue, whatever
Would you smile with and say hey it is not such a problem to have a PINK furry steeringwheel ?
You guys can make the best fix this please

For people who like to have dark development environments, the solution explorer becomes very glaring and quite an eye strain. From an ergonomics point of view, this issue should be a higher priority. It is a "glaring" over site (pun intended)

Hello dotnetwise,

Thank you for taking the time to report this issue with Visual Studio 2010, where Visual Studio uses the white background color instead of the window color chosen. (Unlike most other windows in the product.) At this point in the product cycle we will not be fixing this bug however, we will be tracking this for possibly fixing in a future release. Because this will not be addressed in Visual Studio 2010 I will be closing this as “Won’t Fix.”

Thank you,
Suzanne Hansen, Program Manager, Visual Studio Platform Shell Team
