I just updated to 2015, I would like to change the color of the interface from white to black. The option that show when I right out of the art board. It gives me the option to change to black, dark gray, medium gray, default, or custom color.

Well, when I click on the color option, I tried all of them, it still didnt change the color on the interface.

I restarted the computer, I removed and added the CC2105, still doesnt fix the problem.

See this document for details on using Artboards: https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/using/artboards.html

Artboards are optimized for documents in RGB color mode and using the Advanced setting for drawing mode using your graphics Processor.

Set Drawing Mode to Advanced: https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/kb/photoshop-cc-gpu-card-faq.html#topic-4

If you don't have advanced settings, your card may not be powerful enough, or the driver may be out of date. Troubleshoot graphics card: https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/kb/troubleshoot-gpu-graphics-card.html
