Change Your Document’s Background Color

Summary: Make your Microsoft Word 2003 documents crimson, violet, indigo, or whatever.

Tired of working on documents with black text on a white background? You can easily change the color of your working document to turquoise, brick red, light-gray, or whatever you choose.

1. Select “Format” – “Background”.

2. Select your desired background color, or choose “More Colors” to choose a different color.

Note that, by default, background colors will NOT be printed – this tip shows how to enable that feature.
