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.

  7. 7
    If we are pleased with the choice, we can click the "OK" button
    .

  8. 8
    If we are not pleased with the choice, we can click "CANCEL"
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  9. 9
    For now, let's click "CANCEL"; so we can see it revert back to the old setting
    .
    "CANCEL" has closed the window, and we are back to our previous black bar now.

  10. 10
    Let's click the settings icon one more time
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help

    Once more, we will click "Change theme"
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  12. 12
    Click again on the green "One World" theme
    .
    This will again temporarily change our upper area into a green bar.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  13. 13
    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.

    In the event that we change the theme and decide that we are not happy with it, all we have to do is to click the settings gear icon again
    .

    Then we can select something different
    .
    Perhaps, a bright yellow star theme, which is "Super Sparkle Happy". Give that a click.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  17. 17
    Then click on "OK"
    .
    We'll be greeted with rainbows, clouds, super happy stars, and underlined golden-orange-colored links.
