Change Visio window color settings

You can change background colors in the drawing window, stencil window, print preview window, full-screen view, drawing page, and shape names in stencils.

  1. On the Tools menu, click Options.

  2. On the Advanced tab, click Color Settings.

  3. Choose the color options you want.

Tip: By default, drawing backgrounds and stencil backgrounds are a single color. If your monitor is set to 32-bit color, you can set these backgrounds to grade smoothly from one color into another.
