You can quickly add visual appeal to your Microsoft Word document by adding a background color, image or texture. You can choose from a variety of colors and fill effects. Adding a colorful background image can be helpful when creating a brochure, presentation, or marketing materials.
To add a background color to your document, switch over to the “Design” tab on Word’s Ribbon, and then click the “Page Color” button. This opens a dropdown menu with a selection of colors, including Theme Colors and Standard Colors. Click a color to apply it to the background.
