Many people do not know how to change iTunes color and think it is impossible. Current versions do, however, offer light and dark options so users can customize iTunes by changing the iTunes color for the background. Depending on the layout you choose for iTunes, you may prefer a darker or lighter color and find that one makes it easier to see song titles and album covers than the other.
Items You'll Need
- Open iTunes on your computer. Upgrade to the newest available version if you do not currently have it since newer versions are the ones which allow you to change iTunes color from light to dark. This download is available for free through Apple.com under the "iTunes" section.
- Click the "Edit" menu at the top of the screen. From the list of options that appears, choose the "Preference" option near the bottom. A new window should open showing your current iTunes preference settings. The current iTunes color will be listed in the preference settings box.
- Click the "General" tab if it is not currently selected. Normally the General tab is selected by default when the Preferences box opens.
- Click the drop-down menu box beside "Grid View." Choose either light or dark depending on whether you want a white background or a darker grey background. Currently these are the only two settings available for iTunes colors, but any additional colors in future versions will likely be found under these settings as well.
Mods such as the "Dark Grid Mod" are available to change your iTunes color to a darker shade. Downloading these runs the risk of causing an error which makes iTunes stop working properly, so it's important to always back up your music and files before testing out a mod to change iTunes color.
