December 13, 2021

To make your document more personalized, you can change the background color.

1. open your word document.

2. Head to the Page Layout tab, then click Page Color, where you can choose from a wide range of colors, including Theme color, Standard color and Gradient Fill. For those recommended Gradient, you need to purchase WPS Premium first.

3. If you just want to change the view mode, go to View > Eye Protection Mode, where you can set the background as eye-protection color.
