In previous versions of word the "ribbon" that you put tabs of your own choice onto had a solid blue colour behind .

The latest version is transparent making it harder to read , is is possible to put a solid colour behind them to make them stand out more. I note that when the you ytpe a mispelt word the "offered" words are also hard to read.

Change the Background and Color Schemes of the Office 2019 Applications In any Office application, go to the File tab and choose Account. The Account window opens. Choose an Office Background option. ... then Choose an Office Theme option. Hope this works for you

Hi giggles I already tried that I just want to put a coloured background behind the ribbon to make the custom icons stand out more. The standard blue in previous versions of word was just right.

Maybe I am trying to do something that cant be done.

Hi Gordon I wanted the pale blue background like I had in word 2007 but it is not in the program and Microsoft chat say it is not available as an add in.
