    Changing text highlight color in Word2010 using dark theme


    Hi

    When I highlight text in Word 2010, the background of the highlight becomes white and the text itself becomes dark blue. Is there a way to change it in Regedit (or elsewhere)?

    I tried fiddling with colors here, but no luck:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER > Control Panel > Colors
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER > Control Panel > Desktop Colors

    I think you misunderstood me
    Here is what I mean:Click image for larger version
    To the left is my normal text and background color and to the right is the selected one. It looks like Word 2010 is automatically inverting the color of the selected text. Is there any way to change or customize that?
