Changing the Look of a Site
One of the most common changes users make to a site is to change the look and feel (New!) to customize it. SharePoint comes with a collection of templates, which includes a color scheme, layout, and fonts. After you select a template, you can use the defaults settings or modify the color scheme, layout, and fonts to suit your needs. A preview of your results appears in the window, so you can experiment to create the look you want. If you don’t like the results, you can start over again.
Change the Look of a Site
- In your web browser, open your SharePoint site.
- Navigate to the site you want to change.
- Click the Settings button (Gear icon) on the Navigation bar, and then click Site settings.
Under Site Administration, click the Change the look link.
TIMESAVER Click the Settings button (Gear icon) on the Navigation bar, and then click Change the look or Design Manager.
Click the display template you want to use.
Use any of the following to format the template:
- Click the Color list arrow, and then select a color scheme.
- Click the Site layout list arrow, and then select a non-default site layout from the template.
- Click the Fonts list arrow, and then select a non-default font for the template.
Click Try It Out.
- If you don’t like the results, you can click Start over to begin the process again.
Click Yes, Keep it to save your changes or click No, not quite there to cancel changes.
