Is there a way to change the default baby blue color scheme for the Visio 2007 user interface running on Vista?  I've found the way to change the color schme in the Office 2007 applications like Word and Outlook but not Visio.  I've tried changing Vista's 'Window Color and Appearance' settings with no luck.

well, I'm not sure exactly which color scheme you're talking about, but if you click on Control Panel -> Personalization -> Window Color and Appearance or Themes gives you some choices...

Yes Thanks - but that is what I already tried.  You're describing the setting for VISTA's window colors - What I'm looking for is a way to change the VISIO 2007 color scheme.  Visio uses a baby blue color as the background color behind the menu bar and all of its tool bars.  Visio's color scheme does not change when you change the Vista windows colors.

Other Microsoft Office products (Word, Excel, Outlook) allow you to change their color scheme but so far I have not found a way to change it in Visio 2007.

Ah, I didn't notice that when I skimmed through your question.  I don't use Visio, but I found this page which may be what you want:

Hmm.. Nope.. Those don't allow you to change the color schme of the menu bar or tool bar user interface.  I'm actually wondering if Microsoft may have hard coded Visio to use 'baby blue' as it's UI color.  That's a little too hard for me to believe though.

I don't have a copy of Visio 2007 loaded, but seems to me the new "neutral" color scheme is consistent through out the new 2007 applications. To change in Office you right click on a blank part of the menu bar (the part with the text) and choose "customize quick access toolbar". Then choose "popular" on the left, and "Color Scheme" on the right where you have 3 color choices. I suspect it is similar in Visio.

Visio 2007 does not use the new 'Ribbon' it uses the traditional icons and menu bar. The coulour scheme is non-editable (unless someone knows a registry tweak)
