Steps

  1. 1
    The first thing that we need to do is log into the Office portal
    .
    We have discussed that in a previous tutorial which is available at http://visihow.com/Sign_into_Microsoft_Office_365_for_Business_or_School on VisiHow. In that tutorial, we can find all the details that we need to be able to log into our own account.

    Once we're logged in, we need to navigate to the upper right-hand side of the screen and look for the gear-shaped settings icon
    .

    As the mouse cursor goes over each option, the option changes color to a darker gray
    .
    Then, it changes back to white once we've moved off it. Mouse over the "Change theme" option, which will turn it into a slightly darker color.

    Click on the "Change theme" option once to open up a window where we have a series of themes from which we can select
    .
    Currently, we have a black bar on top going across the window.

    For example, we can click on the theme with a series of bright green stars and trees, which is called "One World"
    .
    A single click on the "One World" theme will change our upper area into a bright green area.

    For now, let's click "CANCEL"; so we can see it revert back to the old setting

    Now, we are going to click "OK" instead of "CANCEL"
    .
    One click on "OK" will save our changes. Now, our main window will remain in the green color. We will also notice that linked texts have changed color. They are green in this example, as opposed to the previous color which made them more difficult to read or see. If we want to change the theme, then this is the way to do that. It's very simple and very easy.

    .
