Change the color of the Unreal Editor UI in UE5

This article was written by Joe Radak

If you’re using multiple branches of Unreal Engine, or just want to create your own visual theme for your team, you can change the color and style of the Editor’s UI. Start by going to Edit > Editor Preferences > Appearance. By default, this should be the first tab you see when opening the Editor Preferences window.

Changing Colors

In the Appearances window, under the Colors section is the Active Theme setting. This is the current theme of your Editor. You can create your own theme and save it, or load in one that has been shared with you. If you want to make a new theme, just duplicate an existing theme, rename it and save it.

Once you’ve done that, you can change any number of UI elements to whichever color you’d like in the Theme Editor. Simply select one of the colors to open a color picker to pick which hue you want to use. Once you’re done selecting colors, hit Save and save the theme somewhere if you’ve not already. There’s a lot of variety in how you can change the colors of your editor.

Color code different branches, make it match your teams/projects colors, or whatever you need!
