How to Select Colors in Programs


In most Programs you can find the color choices where your fonts are.

They are usually under Format in your tool bar.   You would click on

Format, then Font.  A window will open up like the one below.

You will see the word, Color at the bottom of the window.   The

black square is where the color will be displayed.  In this Incidence it's

set to default and black.  Most will always be set to the default.

You will see the same as above usually in Microsoft's Front Page, Word

Programs and more.

Now, all you have to do is click on that tiny arrow next to the word,

default for the window with the colors to open.

or a letter etc. Just click on the color and it will appear where the default is

like the red below.
