Note: I would like to preface this post by saying that I do recommend upgrading to Office 2013 and I am enjoying the added features. I do not get compensation for recommendations and referrals. Please don't think that even though I'd like to purchase a Surface. I'm not a fan boy and just really like it.
While there is no way to change the color scheme in Outlook 2013 like you could in previous versions of Windows for the OS, you do have the option to retain your sanity through a small tweak. This 'tweak' (aka new configuration option) will help alleviate this pain, but not fix what I consider to be a big issue.
There are two ways to 'customize' the look of the application: 'Office Background' and 'Office Theme'. I use the quotes in customize as its not making it unique in any way and is pretty mild in the changes that are actually made.
- With 'Office Background', it makes small changes to the top of the application... hooray... See this well done post for more details: GroovyPost - How to Change the Office 2013 Background Theme.
- With 'Office Theme', it sightly changes the hue of the top and left hand side of the application. There are three exciting themes: 'White', 'Light Grey', and 'Dark Grey'. While sitting over my five dollar footlong subway sandwich (choice of the weight-conscious consultants), I decided these were about as exciting as their names teased.
- Click on 'File' in the upper left hand corner of the screen and select 'Options'
- You will see a screen that looks like Figure 1 below
Will it possible to add more colours?ReplyDelete
There is currently no official (or unofficial...) way to change this outside of the options I detailed above. Microsoft added more colors upon the first official release after the consumer preview version. Who's to say they won't do this again upon the next major update?ReplyDelete
From what I understand, Microsoft is going to release a new, very large update to the Windows 8 OS very soon. This will probably include updates to some of their base apps. I am not sure if this includes Office 2013 updates but I'm crossing my fingers. In my opinion, while the colors are 'cosmetic', that shouldn't mean its an insignificant. I wouldn't want to drive a hot pink car with an all electric yellow interior even if it drove like a Z06 Corvette...
I'll post an update and put a link to that here if it does change.
Have not heard or found anything yet I assume?ReplyDelete
Even with the new updates, there have no changes to this. Still the same colors...ReplyDelete
