Your VS2005 colors

So, i’ve been wanting to optimize the colors in VS2005 since i’ll be coding a little more in the comming months. I have a big 24″ wide screen from Dell and all the white light of VS2005 makes me crazy after 8 hours…

that sad, just check out this post at!

I’m using Zenburn’s schema, it’s nice and darkish. I did change the contrast between colors a bit. In the default theme it is hard to see the difference between some items in VS2005, and that’s what the highlighting is for right? Well if you change them, don’t make it scream out, that’s what the themes are for, to make it easier on your eyes… After the color change i set my virtual machine to cleartype and added the nice Consolas font, ready to code!
