How to Change the Theme on a Kindle Paperwhite

If you use the Kindle Paperwhite, then you will be interested to know that the device comes with a number of themes that allow you to change the way things look on your screen. I know, most people are not aware of this fact. However, you may wish to experiment with yours to make sure that you are getting the reading experience that best suited for your style. So, how do you change the Theme on a Kindle Paperwhite?

Changing Theme on a Kindle

To change the theme on a Kindle Paperwhite, you need to take the following steps;

  1. Tap on the top of your screen. This will bring down the menu.
  2. Click on “Page Display.”
  3. Next, you need to choose “Font and Page Settings.”
  4. Choose “Themes.”
  5. Select the theme that works best for you.

Available themes on a Kindle Paperwhite

The Kindle Paperwhite comes with the following available themes;

  • Compact
  • Standard
  • Large
  • Low Vision

Which option should I choose?

Nobody is going to prescribe the best theme option for you of course. It’s all going to depend on your preferences. Most people will likely stick with the default theme option, not because they are happy with it, but because they do not know that the themes on a Paperwhite can be changed. Anyway, you will notice that the “Custom,” theme does not appear on the above list.

You can see it, however, when you click on “Page Display.” What happens is, the moment you change the font or tweak with any of the other screen options on your Kindle Paperwhite, your theme becomes the “Custom,” theme. Later, I will show you how to save a custom theme that reflects your preferences in another article. What I can say here is that most people actually use the “Custom,” theme because they play around with the options on their screens.
