Inverting the colours of a normal document with a white background and black text changes the background to black with white text. Although there is not an "invert" function in Microsoft Word 2007, you can manually change the colour of your text and background in a document to a black background with white text, to achieve inverted colours. Changing the colour of the text and background does not harm the content of the document; you can revert it if you change your mind.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Double-click on the Microsoft Word 2007 desktop shortcut icon or select the program from the "Start" menu on your computer to open it. Click the "Office" button in the top left and select "Open." Browse to the location of the file you want to invert the colours of and double-click it to open it in Word 2007.

  2. 2

    Click the "Page Layout" tab in the Word 2007 Ribbon.

  3. 3

    Click the "Page Colour" drop-down menu in the "Page Background" section.

  4. 4

    Click on the "Black" colour. The page background will turn black. Note that it will appear as if your text disappears with black text and a black background.

  5. 5

    Click within your document. Press the "Ctrl" key and the "A" key on your keyboard simultaneously to highlight all text in the document.

  6. 6

    Click the "Home" tab in the Word 2007 Ribbon.

  7. 7

    Click the "Text Colours" drop-down button in the "Font" section.

  8. 8

    Click on the "White" colour. The text will turn white.
