Apply a Theme in Word: Overview

            You can easily apply a theme in Word to your document. In Word, a “theme” is a collection of style sets. Each style set in a theme has its own font, color, spacing and other formatting applied.

            To apply a theme in Word to a document, click the “Design” tab in the Ribbon. In the “Document Formatting” button group, then click the “Themes” drop-down button to open a menu of choices. You can then hold your mouse over each theme in the menu to show a preview in your document. Simply click the theme you want to use to apply it to your document.

            If you decide you no longer want to use a chosen theme, then click the “Design” tab in the Ribbon. You can then click the “Themes” drop-down button and choose the “Reset to Theme from Template” command. Doing this reverts your document back to the default theme for whichever template you used to create the document.

            If desired, to set a selected theme as the default for all new blank documents you create, click the “Design” tab in the Ribbon. Then click the “Set as Default” button at the right side of the “Document Formatting” button group.
