How to Reset Eclipse Theme to Classic

I just installed Eclipse 2021-03 version on my computer and one thing I noticed was it being set up to a Dark theme by default. I am pretty much used to the Classic Theme, so here is how I set the theme back to the default one,

  1. Go to Windows (Eclipse in case of macOS) menu option,
  2. Go to General -> Apperances,
  3. Now uncheck - "Enable theming"
  4. You will see a message saying "Theme change: A restart is required for the theme to take full effect."
  5. Click on the restart hyperlink.
  6. When you restart eclipse the theme should be back to the classic one.
