I have a friend that changed the color scheme of his office installation on his laptop and I want to change mine so its black like his also, how do I do this?

If I have to change the Microsoft Office files, I won't be able to do that as this is on my school laptop and I can't access anything on the hdd.

To change the colour scheme, click File and then Options towards the bottom. File Menu

After clicking options, this dialogue will show up and you can then use the Colour Scheme drop down to change the colour of your office installation.


Note: This setting is global and set for all Microsoft Office applications. I don't know of a way to change it for one application.
