I have applied a Color Theme. How can I get back to the default theme without restarting Emacs (version 23)?
Move point (the cursor) to first line showing:
and press 'Enter' (return).
Alternatively, to get back to the Emacs default themes, also try:
However, from your question it's not clear which theme you initially started with. For example, if you simply been using the default theme provided in the color-theme quickstart when you first (manually) installed color-theme then do this:
or whatever you had specified in your .emacs file (if applicable).
That's a tricky one. What I have done before is make a color theme from your default ( there's a library out there that does it but the name escapes me (color-theme-maker) maybe?)
Then you can always switch back to it whenever you want. That's what I did, I named it default-23 or something. Good luck.
