The easiest way to change the feel of your workbooks is to change the background color and style. To change the background color, go to Tools|Customize Display|Screen/Printer Fonts, Colors, and Symbols…, then go to the Colors & Symbols tab on the right.
Color Start and Color End are important if you want to create a gradient background, like the background in the first image. A gradient background begins with your specified Color Start color then transforms into your Color Stop color either vertically, horizontally, or diagonally (pictured above). If you choose the Solid color style, simply select your Color Start.
Like the Screen Background, you can have a solid background or a gradient. Simply follow the steps above for selecting your colors and styles.
