Video: Apply, customize, and save a document theme

Your browser does not support video. Install Microsoft Silverlight, Adobe Flash Player, or Internet Explorer 9.

You can give a professional look to a document by applying a document theme. A theme is a set of formatting choices that include a set of theme colors, a set of theme fonts (including heading and body text fonts), and a set of theme effects (including lines and fill effects).

Microsoft Office and Office Starter provide many built-in document themes, but you can also create your own by customizing and then saving a document theme. Document themes are shared between Office programs so that all your documents can have the same, uniform look.
