Hello - now this is a real curly Win98SE/MS Word 2000 question to kick off with....and I've not even been able to elicit an answer from the Gods of Office on the MS MVP newsgroups. How do I change the background colour of the Word edit window in Print Layout view? In this view you see the paper sheet, but it does not fill the window, so you see some background around the paper. What controls the colour of this space? I know a couple of things about it: 1. It is controlled by the Windows colour scheme 2. It is not controlled by any of the settings that you can change if you go to Display>Properties>Appearance>etc (at least not that I can find) 3. It is not controlled by the larger group of settings that you can find in the Registry: HKCurrentUser>ControlPanel>Colors>... 4. I've got a great color scheme (to my jaded eyes anyway) that I set up using the normal approach, Display>Properties>Appearance, etc - Nice muted sandy colours - But when I went to MS Word, that workspace is a bright mustard-yellow...ouch! I know this sounds a really trivial problem...but most PC problems fall sooner or later to my dogged headbutting...but this ones stuck...help please!

A part from changing your colour scheme again, I don't think there is anything you can do.

This colour is determined through the 3d Objects colour (found this out through simple experimentation). It creates a darker version of the 3d Objects colour. I think you have a light'ish yellow there, when it's made darker that becomes more 'pure' yellow, hence the glaring colour. Could be a bit wrong about this reasoning,
Not much you can do about it apart from changing the 3d to something else...
