How to Change the Background Color in Word 2007


Microsoft Word 2007 is the latest edition to Microsoft’s trademark word-processing program, which offers a new user interface. The result is a more user-friendly program, although it can take some time to acclimate to the new setup. As a result of the interface overhaul, simple tasks-such as changing the page background color--can be unfamiliar to new users. However, changing the background color is simpler than in previous versions, and Word 2007 even lets you easily preview your changes before making them.

  • Open the document on which you’d like to change the page background.

  • Click on the “Page Layout” tab. This will change the set of buttons and options on the top of the program.

  • Locate the “Page Color” drop-down menu, located in the “Page Background” section, and click on it. This will open a drop-down menu where you can select the background color.

  • Hold your mouse over a color to preview the background color. Select a background color by clicking once on a color. You can also click on the “More Colors…” button to find additional colors to select for the background in a pop-up dialogue box. Click on a color and select “OK” to add that color as the background, then close the dialogue box.
