I want to change my settings in Word 2007 so that my color scheme is black, but I don't want it to change in all across all of the Office suite.

By going to the Office menu icon, then Word Options, then Popular, there is a section called "Top options for working with Word", but when I change any of these options (such as "Color Scheme", or "Show Developer tab in Ribbon"), it changes it across all my Office programs (Excel, Outlook, Word, etc.), even though the terminology of the menu sounds like it should just be for that application.

I've also looked at the Advanced section (instead of Popular), but there doesn't seem to be any other way to change these settings.

Does anyone know how or if this can be done?
