When using any of the MS Office included applications, for example Excel 2010 running under Windows 8.1, the styles menu option to change font color does not change the font color.  It seems to be the same in Word 2010.  I have removed all Styles as suggested elsewaher, with no chane.  Any suggestiosn?
