Judging from that screenshot, I take it you want a dark theme? Go to the Control Center, and under Look and Feel, click on Appearance. Then click on Customize and in the tab "Controls" select a dark theme.

For fonts, go to Appearance >> Fonts tab.
For colors, go to Appearance >> Theme tab, click Customize, then Colors tab.
For icons, go to Appearance >> Theme tab, click Customize, then Icons tab.

You can also download some themes. What desktop are you using?

Here's a link for themes made for the Cinnamon desktop: https://cinnamon-spices.linuxmint.com/themes
Here's a link for themes made for the MATE desktop: http://mate-desktop.com/themes/

[ Personally, I only trust themes that come with the default Mint installation, but that's just me. ]

I don't know, I use MATE. The user of that theme is on KDE, so I don't know if it would work on Cinnamon. Send him a PM, maybe?

no it's cinnamon, even if there is the KDE icon. I've sent him a PM some days ago, but still no replay :(
