In FortiOS 5.4 you now have the option to change the interface color. I was excited about this since I wasn’t much of a fan of the emerald green that is the default setting.

It’s very easy to adjust.

To switch the color, navigate to System –> Settings. At the bottom, under View Settings, you can find the option to change the theme. There are currently four colors available: green, red, blue, and my favorite, melongene (purple). Thanks, Fortinet!

Below are screengrabs on how to enable your new interface theme color.

Default color theme:
