Open powerpoint our word or excel. Choose file, then options. You can change the office theme there.

Hi!
No but I managed to change the color theme with a registry entry in a gpo.

Still dont know how to change the background.

Here is what i did to change to dark grey:

HKLM
REG_DWORD
Software\Microsoft\Office\15.0\Common
Ui Theme
2

My experience with the registry change, is that Office will revert back to whatever it is set to.

For example, you have the white theme, you change the reg to the theme "2" (dark gray). When you re-open an Office app, say Word, it will be briefly dark gray but then within a second, change back to white. How can we get it to stick?
