    Michel,

    In the MapInfo Pro installation folder in the subfolder Styles, you can find the file MapInfoProStyle.xml.

    This file controls the style or color of the individual elements of the MapInfo Pro user interface. You can change the elements to a darker grey or black color using this file.

    I'd recommend creating a copy of the file before changing it.

    Thanks Peter. It is working. I wish there is a way to change the main white background but I doubt it.

    Michel,

    The main background is for your document windows. If you open a map, it will take up all the white space. Would that work for you?
