My workbench theme is Deep black and Editor theme is Eclipse standard but whenever I open my eclipse only my workbench background color changes to light pink or white colou and therefore I have to change my preference settings every time I open my eclipse or also if I have created a new class.

Sorry that you are seeing this issue. Thank you for the screenshot.
Can you please give us some more details?
1. Eclipse version and details from Help > About Eclipse?
2. OS and version details, any particular OS theme set in case of Windows?
3. Do you see the issue in a fresh new workspace as well? Please share the .log file located at workspace dir/.metadata/.log (rename the extension to .txt and attach it here) to help us check for any errors logged.
4. Please go to
Window > Preferences > Oomph > Setup Tasks > Preference Recorderand see if the Record into is checked? In case it is checked, then please uncheck it and shut down Eclipse. Go to [user_home]/.eclipse and move / delete the folders named *oomph* – this will make the (bad) saved preferences inaccessible. Restart Eclipse, switch to a new workspace and check if this helps clear out the issue.

Apologies for missing out your reply. Sorry that the suggestion didn’t help.
Can you please check how it looks in Eclipse Dark theme? Go to Window > Preferences > General > Appearance and select Dark for the theme. Restart the IDE and check if the highlight issue persists.
As Aaron mentioned in his previous responses on this thread, it is a known limitation of SWT on Windows 7. The only other suggestion is to check with different Windows (OS) themes and enabling Aero if possible : https://obsproject.com/wiki/How-to-enable-or-disable-Aero-in-Windows-7
Hope this helps.
