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.
