Did you know… How to quickly set the editor background to black

You can quickly change the editor background to black by going to Tools Options Environment Fonts & Colors. Make sure that “Show Settings For” is on Text Editor and the Plain Text is selected in “Display Items”. Change item foreground from Default (Automatic) to White and change the item background from Default (Automatic) to Black.

Happy Editing!

    DYK that by "quickly" most people mean one-or-two mouseclicks, or one-or-two keystrokes? You just described the normal way to configure it, not a shortcut to it.

    Other than that: good tip.

    My tip: change "did you know" to "do you know", or rephrase the "How to…" as "that…".
