This tutorial explains how to change theme in Outlook.com.
Microsoft has revamped Outlook.com and started rolling out the new features to users. Some beautiful and new themes are also a part of the new Outlook.
More than a dozen themes are available for new Outlook.com. These are named as: Circuit, Super Sparkle Happy, Mountain Peak, Beach Sunset (my favorite), Jelly Fish, Angular 80’s, Whale of a Time, Crayon, ‘Far, Far Away’, Comic Book, and more.
Earlier, there were only solid colors that you could apply as themes. Now, there are some really cool themes (art and animated themes) available to choose from. Those who regularly use Outlook.com as their primary email service would be happy with this news. Earlier, Microsoft rolled out new features including themes as a preview to a small group (read the announcement here). Now, the updates are rolling out worldwide.
Above you can see the new themes added by Microsoft in Outlook.com.
