Chapter 6: Customizing Your Phone > Changing the Theme

Changing the Theme

Blue on black isn't everyone's idea of a good look or inviting interface. Here are the simple steps to customizing your theme options.

  1. Turn on your phone and unlock it. Press the arrow in the upper right-hand of the screen to show a list of all options, scroll down, and tap Settings (see Figure 6–3).

  3. The first option on this page allows you to change the background from dark (black) to light (white).

    TIP: Choosing (or keeping) the background set to “dark” will help conserve battery power!

  4. The second option lets you choose between ten “accent” colors. The color you choose here will be the background color of your live tiles on the Start screen, and will accent text throughout the phone (e.g., links, bolded text, etc.). Pick one that you like!
