Access 2010 FAQ


Can I change the Access 2010 color scheme to something other than the default silver color?


Yes, you can change the Access default color scheme from silver to blue or black. Click the File tab on the Backstage view and then click Options to open the Access Options dialog box.


On the General tab, click the down arrow on the Color Scheme combo box. You can choose Blue, Silver, or Black for a color scheme, as seen in the following screenshot.



Click OK to save your changes. Note that Access tells you that you must close and reopen the database to see these changes, however, you'll immediately see the color change.
