  • To change the color scheme, open any of MS Office applications (Words, Excel, Power Point) and click the Office button on the extreme top left of application.
  • Click the Options and under the popular tab and you will find color scheme.
  • Change the color scheme from available colours (ble, silver and black) and click OK.This short method will change the color scheme and look of MS Office to your liking.

win 7

Sorry incomplete post.
My OS is: Win 7, 64 bit, new install (& new user).
Office app is: Office 2003.
Clour changes in OS have no effect on Office 2003 which is MS Blue & I hate it.
I am sure this was easily changed in Win XP.
Any suggestions or are colour options extremely limited.
