In print view there is a mauve surround to the document. How can I change
the colour?

Thank you

If that's a windows setting why do I have different backgrounds in different
computers, all with XP Home?

Because it's a Windows setting, a variable. Look at your Display
Properties|Appearance.

Thanks, I got it.

However, I only have 3 choices of colour and in other computers I have
different colours. How can I choose my own colour?~~

Thank you~~~JB

If you have Windows XP and Office 2003, you should have more colors. Office
2007 limits you to three colors. Out of curiosity, what are your colors?

about was mauvish...)~

That sounds more like you have Word 2007, not 2003. Big difference.

And it sounds like your monitor/graphics need colour calibrating. If you are
using Windows 7, go to Display options, Color Calibration and follow the on
screen instructions.
