I don't have this item either in the stable version (0.99.7) or in the unstable version (1.0 beta 2)
You've opened an image and you're in XnView's image viewer, ruvlad. Menu "View » Theme" can be found in browser/browser mode, only. In image viewer choose "File » Browse" to switch to XnView's browser.

Thank you for getting back, ruvlad. Good to read that you've found the menu item and are no longer left in the dark bright. ;)

I believe XN view is a great software, however the UI is frustrating.
I think the best UI that Xnview could use for inspiration is the one of Adobe Bridge:

The things I particularly miss in xnview are:

A panel with the most important Exif information in larger font (aperture, shutter speed, focal length, iso)

A possibility to change the color of the UI and font size. I personally prefer dark grey over black:

Before switching to Mac I used Zoner Studio which also has some nice UI features:

Preview of changes for batch editing:

Compare mode highlights photo currently selected:

Import from camera shows a thumbnail preview to select photos and preview of the list of folders to be created:

The photo info is quite tidy:
