To add a splash of excitement to your document, change the background or color of the page with the Page Color button. Here’s how:
- Click Design > Page Color.
- Pick the color you want under Theme Colors or Standard Colors.
- To add a custom color, click More Colors and then click a color.
- To add a gradient, texture, pattern, or picture, click Fill Effects, click the Gradient, Texture, Pattern, or Picture tab, and then click the options you want.
To remove the page color, click Design > Page Color > No Color.
Patterns and textures are repeated (or “tiled”) to fill the entire page. If you save your document as a Web page, the textures are saved as JPEG files, and the patterns and gradients are saved as PNG files.
