Change Netbeans Look and Feel (LAF)
I prefer to use Netbeans using one of the dark look and feels, but it's always a pain trying to find the names of them to specify in the CLI command to launch netbeans with. Alternatively, there is an easier way using the GUI as shown below:
- Make Netbeans Pretty (change line spacing and font rendering)
Go to Tools > Options.
Then click on Appearance > Look and Feel tab, then choose the look and feel from the dropdown menu before hitting apply.
Now restart Netbeans to actually see the changes take effect.
