I found the color setting for editor and command line in the preference. But as for the background of panel of tools(file, variable, code...) or the name of directory? Is it possible to change it to black and set the font to be white?

The schemer gives the following result. Is there any way to change the color of the white "edges" ? Thank you for your answer.

I am assuming that you are using MATLAB 2019b.
You can change the panel color by going to Preferences>>MATLAB>>Colors. Clear ‘Use system colors’. Select the colors you want to use from the Text and Background color palettes.
You can change Code Analyzer colors by going to MATLAB>>Colors>>Programming tools. Select the colors you want for warnings, autofix highlighting or both

I know what the "preference" could do to the color setting. The Text, Background and Pragramming page could be changed, but not the panel of the tools. If I want to make all the Matlab to be a dark theme, I only could do it as the pictrure I pasted in the above answer. There are still some white parts.

This staff apparently did not notice you have already tweaked the color option in the preference. After seeing the changes in 2020a, I am convinced that Mathworks is gradually abandoning the old editor to embrace its buggy and slow Live Editor for mlx. For example, simple things like bracket autoClosing is only in live editor...
I am switching to Visual Studio Code as editor of m-files.
