How to Change the Screen Background and Theme in Office 2016

By Peter Weverka

Starting on the Accounts screen, you can change the screen background and Office 2016 theme. The screen background is the fluff that appears along the top of Office application windows. The Office theme is the color (or lack thereof) that appears around the perimeter of Office application windows. You are encouraged to experiment with screen backgrounds and Office themes until you find a combination that works for you.

Follow these steps to choose a screen background and Office theme:

  1. On the File tab, choose Account.
