Windows 7: Changing color scheme of Office 2003 running on Windows 7 OS

Changing color scheme of Office 2003 running on Windows 7 OS

I would like to change the color scheme of Outlook 2003 and Word 2003. I am running on Windows 7 but there does not seem to be an option to alter the color scheme of the programs. I can change the Windows theme but not the color scheme of the programs like Outlook and Word. Is this not possible anymore or is blue the only color available?

Thanks!

Tom

Seems like it's only possible on Windows XP/2000, can't find anything for Windows 7.

When you change a color in a workbook palette, any element formatted with that color is changed throughout the entire workbook.

  • If you copy an object or cells with a custom color to another workbook, the custom color is replaced by the color in the corresponding position on the other workbook's color palette. To retain the custom color, either copy the customized color palette to the other workbook or change the corresponding color in the workbook.
  • To replace the default color palette in new workbooks, change the color palette in the default workbook template or in the custom template you use to create workbooks.
