How to change Google Doc background color

Google Docs is a very convenient online platform for creating various text documents, storing them, and sharing them with people by providing access via a link to them. The standard theme of the Google Docs interface is blue, and the text itself is on a white background.

In general, it creates a pleasant atmosphere for work and doesn’t irritate the eyes. Due to the quality picture and a user-friendly interface, the question of choosing a text editor in the absence of an offline version of Word falls away by itself.

However, over time, many people want to replace even the most pleasant and interesting colors with something else, more original and perhaps bright or vice versa, darker, everything depends on your taste. How to change the theme in Google Doc below.

As mentioned above, Google Docs is a very popular online word processing tool. As its name suggests, this service was created and is maintained by Google. With Google Docs you can create, edit and share documents online.

The only requirements for use are Internet access and a Google account because the service is exclusively online. If your internet connection is bad, or you lose it while using it, you won’t be able to save changes to your documents and share them with others.

In fact, without the internet, you won’t even be able to go into Google Docs. However, this information is hardly new to experienced users. What most days don’t know is how to change the interface theme in this service.
