The new Office 2013 Preview has 4 different toolbar backgrounds to choose from, or none. Keep in mind these backgrounds aren’t huge. Each background only fills up a small portion of the toolbar (for now) at the top-right corner of each Office app. If you’re curious about what they look like, check out the images of each one below:
Circles and Shapes
Changing the background is easy.
In any Office 2013 app, click the File Menu to access all of your options.
On the File ribbon click the Account menu and there will be a drop-menu to select which background you’d like to use. Changes take effect the moment you make a selection.
Note: The only exception to this is Outlook, which will instead have its menu labeled “Office Account” as shown here and below.
Enjoy those snazzy backgrounds in Office 2013! And stay tuned for more groovy office tips here on groovyPost.
