Several people use WordPress to publish and want a workspace with their preferred colors in the administration area to give it a more personal and authentic touch. Today we will show you how to change or add color schemes in WordPress administration quickly and correctly.
What are WordPress Dashboard Color Schemes?
WordPress, by default, comes with some color schemes for administration. These schemes are a combination of four colors in each palette, which are eight palettes found in the user profile in the Users section » Your profile, from which you can choose which will be the default for your profile.
The color schemes have been adapted since WordPress 3.8 with the launch of the new redesign of the administration area to satisfy more tastes when it comes to appearance and colors.
How to Change Color Scheme?
To change the default WordPress color scheme, access the administration area, then go to the section Users » Your profile to see all the WordPress color schemes from which you can choose the one that meets your tastes.
