Change background or theme in Office 2013 OCT

Hi!

I want to customize my office 2013 installation and change the default White apperance to some of the grey themes and also change the background.

Is it possible to do that through the Office Customization Tool?

I cant find it.

Regards
Johnny

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

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

Hi!

Yes, I know but I want to distribute Office with gray as standard layout using the Office Customization Tool as mentioned above.

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?

I have deployed 50 Machines with windows 8 and office 2013 and the darkgrey sticks in hklm so it works for me. But I cant find out how to set the registry to change background image.
