    Where is the facility for changing general MS Office background colour

    Before W10 I could go into the area now called 'Personalize' and after rummaging around I could find an 'Advanced' button that took me to a screen where I could use a colour palette to change the default background colour of documents and it would apply to Outlook, Excel, Word and others. I prefer a light blue to white. (In this area you could also choose to change the default colours for all different parts of the Windows display).

    My options migrated ok when I moved from W7 to W10 but I somehow messed something up yesterday and now I've got white and can't find this W7 (and previous) background colour display change facility. I experimented with themes and some seem to affect this universal background colour, but I can't find where to tweak that to what I want.

    Does anyone know where this old 'Advanced' colour options has gone to?

    Many thanks.

    In Outlook click File > Office Account > Office Theme, maybe? Limited options though.
