Change the Outlook 2010 color scheme
The default color scheme of Microsoft Office 2010 is silver. Two additional color schemes — blue and black — are available. The color scheme changes the user interface background of the Outlook program window and backgrounds for most program elements including the Navigation Pane, To-Do-Bar, ribbon, message headers, and forms for contacts and tasks.
Note Changes to the color scheme apply to all programs that are a part of Microsoft Office 2010.
Click the File tab.
Under User Interface options, in the Color scheme list, click Blue, Silver, or Black.
