Are there any predefined MATLAB dark mode settings so we do not need to maually set-up them ?
Specially for the MATLAB editor ?
Thanks.

The best way that I know of to do this is to use MATLAB Schemer from the File Exchange.

Hey!
Go to Preferences under Home tab and then go to Color.
There you can change the background color and text color.
Remember, you can't make it entire dark theme.
Hope it will help you

I know that MATLAB Schemer has been the go to answer for a dark mode for a while, but I wasn't particularly happy with it due to the still bright ribbon and borders.
Instead, I have been using a GNOME window color-inverter (Ubuntu) in order to invert the colors of just the matlab window. It's not perfect, but I think it's a step in the right direction

David, I did that on Windows but my laptop is taking time to load the display.

Similar to @Jacob Hartzer, I don't think scheming the editor is a sufficient solution. I described my own workaround in this thread on the topic:
