I use Excel all the time. I’ve been on the 2007 version for quite some time and I still can’t get over the ugly pastel color scheme that Microsoft provided us with for the new version.
I know you can choose from a host of other color themes that are available, but most of those suck too.
So I made my own and thought I’d share it with you.
When you get this file, extract it to the following location:
%AppData%\Roaming\Microsoft\Templates\Document Themes\Theme Colors
This equates to the following:
C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Templates\Document Themes\Theme Colors
C:\Documents and Settings\YOURUSERNAME\Application Data\Microsoft\Templates\Document Themes\Theme Colors
Note: These directories won’t exist until you create a custom color scheme. To do so:
- Open Excel
- Page Layout -> Colors
- Create New Theme Colors
