Changing you Colour Scheme in Office and Outlook 2010

Changing you Colour Scheme in Office and Outlook 2010

Well my friend and Colleague Justin Zarb showed me something funky in Office2010 beta today. He was running his installation with a great “Black” colour scheme in Outlook, similiar to below;


The way he set this up was to go into options in word and choose optimize ribbon.


Then you have a choice of either Black , Silver or Blue.

Note this not only affects Word but also all your other suite of Office 2010 Applications including Outlook.

It is funny how the small things like that can make me happy !

  • Just to let you know that this is also available in office 2007. Make office your own! .... and virtualize it at the same time :o)

  • Thanks microsoft for now allowing me to make my own themes.

  • the schemes really suck. it makes the navigation pane really difficult to read, everything looks faded.

  • @not happy - 800x600 usually helps :)

  • is this a deployable option??? via OCT or GPO?
