I downloaded the IDLE-like color scheme from here. However, I can't find where to install this for use with PyCharm on Windows 7?

Instead of tweaking with file path.
1) Download a color theme from here
2) Pycharm > File > Import Setting > point to the color theme downloaded in (1)

Pycharm should recognise this as a theme (i.e. only the theme checkbox is available) in the import dialog that follows (2)

Thanks. It's been a while since I worked with PyCharm. Can someone confirm? – ysap Nov 25 '15 at 17:39

Looks like I tried placing it in the wrong place. According to this page, The file should be installed in <User home>\.PyCharmXX\config\colors. Then, restarting the IDE enables the selection of the scheme from the Settings pane.
