AutoCad Interface/Background

Hello everyone,
As we know, AutoCad 2010 has a simple white/lemon like look as we install it, I spent hours to find out and failed, how to change my basic AutoCad looking to this special below:
http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/0/06/AutoCAD_Interface.png

The main reason that i know that it has a theme change to dark and i know how to change the colors, but as long as im interested in AutoCad i noticed that people use the same "template" i mean all the color codes are the same and the look of it is the same like in the picture i just uploaded above. So my question is How to have exact look as mentioned in the above picture?

 

 

I no longer have 2010 loaded to compare what the old colors were but the attached screen shot of the Select Color dialog box show the color settings for 'Uniform Background' in 2012.

 

Hope this helps.

I think this is what you want:

 

Options dialog > Display tab > Window Elements area in the upper left corner > Color scheme drop-down list:  choose Dark.

Not exactly, i mentioned that i know those things about color scheme and colors. But the main drawing window the grids, the background color, that [-][Top][2d Wireframe] writing on the top right corner the exact view is what im looking for.. If you didint noticed there are a lot users using the exact look i just linked at my first post, so im wondering if it is some kind of addon for AutoCad or already made template, looking for someone to point me out. 

But thanks for your time and posting i appreciate that.

You've posted this question in the Autocad Architecture forum.

The photo image you uploaded shows the plain Autocad interface.

 

Are you telling us that you have Autocad Architecture and you want to use plain Autocad ?

 

Without specific information on what you have and what you want it is difficult to offer solutions.
