To Change Theme Colors
A color scheme in Word is a document theme that identii es 12 complementary colors for text, background,
accents, and links in a document. With more than 20 predei ned color schemes, Word provides a simple way to select
colors that work well together.

and greens. In Word, the Aspect color scheme uses these colors. Thus, you will change the color scheme from the
default, Ofi ce, to Aspect. The next steps change theme colors.
