There are two ways to switch up your UI theme in Final Fantasy XIV. The first is to head to your System menu on your menu bar and navigate to the System Configuration menu. This can also be accessed with the default shortcut of Ctrl-K. Select the sixth icon, Theme Settings. From here, you can change the theme of your UI.

The second is to access the Configuration option from the start menu. This will take you to the same System Configuration menu as above. You’ll need to log out for any changes to take effect, and the theme on the Main Menu will always remain the default upon starting the game. Changing the UI in the main menu has the benefit of immediately taking effect when you log in.
