Do you miss the old versions of Word where you could use a dark background and light text?
I got this link courtesy of author Douglas Clegg:
You can not only change Word 2007 so the background and text colors are reversed for ease of use, you can make it look like an old-time word processor and reduce your time-suckage distractions by setting it up for full-screen viewing!
Mega-cool, and a HUGE thank you to Douglas for the link!!!!
