Microsoft Word is one of the best applications available for the PC Users, which allows you to edit, customize and make your daily work easily handled. By default the background of your MS Word created documents are White in color and it would be great if you could change the background colours. In order to get started first open a existing doc file or else create a new doc file.
Click on the Page Layout option in the Top Menu and then select page Background option.
Under the Page Color option you can choose from the color selection option listed under ‘Theme Colors’ or ‘Standard Colors’ and the moment you mouse hover the different colors you will be able to instantly view the different color effects,, while clicking on any would apply the same as your new background color. Selecting the option of ‘Fill Effects’ would allow you to change the background color’s texture, gradient, pattern etc. The colors added using this option would allow you to just see them on the document but it wont be visible when you go for a printout of the same document file.
In order to make sure that the formatting you have implemented on your Document in the form of different colors, to be shown on the printed file, you need to do more settings changed. Go to the Printing Options and here you need to change the options so that the selected background color would be included in the printed document. Go to Tools > Options > Print tab. Next under the section of ‘Include with the Document’, enable the option which says ‘Print Background Color & Images’ which will fix everything.
