Is Microsoft Word 2007 too bright for you and hurts your eyes because the colors are so light? Do you spend a lot of time in Microsoft Word and have bad eye strain? You can very easily change the background in Microsoft Word 2007 so that you lessen the strain on your eyes while you type.
Open a Microsoft Word 2007 Document by clicking on the Vista Start Menu, the “Programs” option, and then open Microsoft Word 2007.
On the Office Ribbon click the “Page Layout” tab.
In the middle of the ribbon, you will see the “Page Background” section so click on the “Page Color” button and select a darker bluish color.
Now change your text color to a very light color (such as white) and begin typing.
You will notice a drastic difference immediately. Try this for a while and this should dramatically lessen any eye strain.
