I would choose a dark forum option if it were available, even in day time. I've chosen the dark theme for both BorisFX and Steinberg forums.
But both Windows 10 and 11 have a Night Light setting accessible by R clciking the desktop and choosing the Display Setting menu item. Night Light provides a warmer display and can either be manually turned on or off or set to automatically apply at the time that you want.
@todd-b ... thank you. I've added the Dark Reader as an extension to Chrome. I always go for a dark interface when its available including in Microsoft 365, Audacity, etc, etc. It's much easier on my eyes. The greatest applause I've given to a program when it introduced a dark UI was when Sound Forge Pro did so. I got eyestrain/headaches when using white UI only SFP for a lengthy session - not so since using the dark UI with the L & R waveforms set to a sort of mustard hue.
+1 I definitely like Vegas and Soundforge more with a dark interface, but mainly text rather with a light background. A good software should be able to do both. Similarly in the working world: Work should be able to be done either standing or sitting if possible.
Maybe is it possible to add custom skins to Vegas?
We're talking about this forum's appearance not Vegas itself.

Hi, just thought i'd update this, thanks @todd-b Dark Reader seems good & i've only allowed it on this Vegas page, we'll see how i get on,, 👍
I understand the choice of a brighter screen, I think a choice of either dark or light would be good,
For all but the last couple of yrs i've had perfect vision, i could see a Gnats cock hair a mile away, seeing things far away is still no prob & the pc screen is crystal clear but just in the last couple of yrs seeing things up close is getting harder, small writing on packages in poor light mainly or trying to get that tiny screw in that tiny hole when i've got my head in a cupboard i'm building 🧐
But i want the dark screen mainly for this - Google - 'Exposure to light suppresses the secretion of melatonin, a hormone that influences circadian rhythms. Even dim light can interfere with a person's circadian rhythm and melatonin secretion.' - 'Exposure to blue light (and white light, which contains blue light) during the sensitive period can make it difficult for you to fall asleep and stay asleep. Exposure to white light during the day can have positive effects, including boosting alertness and mood.'
I've always found it hard to get to sleep on a night, i have curtains in my bedroom that almost completely black out the light.
