Windows 8 "Window Color and Appearance"


  • In regards to my question, my ultimate goal is to change default background color of Office 2013 into something other than white as such a bright color is very straining to the eyes.

    In windows 7, I was able to accomplish this through

    1. right click on desktop

    2. Click on Personalization

    3. Click Window Color (among icons on the bottom)

    4. Click Advanced Appearance Setting which brought out "Windows Color and Appearance"

    5. The list on the bottom which defaults to "Desktop", I switch it to "Window"

    6. Choose a custom color to the right of the drop-down list

    I was wondering where I can find a similar function in Windows 8, or a different solution that can change the default color of Word (For example, if I change the color to a light green, the light green is not printed. I do know that I can change the background color of a single word document, however, it is a hassle. Furthermore, by changing the default windows color it can also be used elsewhere so it is more useful.)
