Outlook 2013 - Theme Selection Won't Stick

I dislike having 'white' as my office theme (I prefer dark gray).

Changing it is easy enough, but for some reason the change won't stick in Outlook 2013. If I close the program and then open it again, it automatically reverts back to the white theme. I have even tried adding a DWORD registry key in the Office --> Common area using regedit, but this change did not seem to have any effect.

I am running 32-bit Office on a 64-bit Win 7 machine joined to a domain. AFAIK there are no group policy settings associated with Office.

It's a minor issue, but it's annoying when a setting just refuses to stay the way you put it.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi, RoloTony.

Is this the key you created/set?

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\15.0\Common\UI Theme

If so, what value did you set it to?  Have you checked to see if the value is actually changing when you change the theme in Office?

BlueDevilFan: Yes, that is indeed the registry key. I looked at Md. Mojahid's artice and changed it under account instead of just options. That seems to have made it stick.

Thanks guys!
