First of all I want to say what to do color page in Word is very simple. Microsoft Word allows you to set the desired background from the page in just a few seconds. But before explaining how to do this, let's see WHY do we need to make a sheet in color?
Why do I need to make a non-white page on the Word?
Usually the color of the page in the Word is changed in order to make the document more beautiful. Unfortunately, many do not understand that changing the background of the page from standard white to another can result in a number of problems. First of all it is worth considering whether you will print your color document? If so, on what? If you are going to print the created Word document to a regular black and white office printer, then it’s better to immediately give up color pages, since any color other than black will simply turn into grayscale (shades) of gray and instead of beautiful document which you see on the monitor screen, you get nonsense.
If you print on a color device, you can, but you will use a lot of toner, because this is a regular page fill. Given the prices of consumables for color printers, it is worth considering the feasibility of changing the color of the page right in the Word .
But if you want to withdraw Word document in PDF, then everything is in order - feel free to change the color of the underlay of the page as you wish.
The smart way to change page color in Word
If you just need a color BACKGROUND, but not color text, then it is preferable to simply use printing on colored paper or cardboard, which can be bought at any stationery store. In this way you can easily make color pages. The text will not be colored, but it is not necessary.
How to make a color page in Word (for lazy)
But, in fact, what you were probably looking for was how to change the background directly in the document. Go to the Ribbons menu in the "Page Layout" section and select "Page Color" there, then select the desired color in the drop-down menu. I will not give a picture here - all this is very primitive. In my courses, I explain these things in detail, of course, but in this article I wanted to focus on how to change the background color of the page, and also to think about "why this is necessary." Such thoughts lead to a better understanding of what you are doing.
Now you know one trick more ...
The shown method of changing the background of the page in the Word is not the only one. Word hides many secrets, the development of which takes time. If you want to work in the program professionally, that is, to create well-designed documents and, moreover, quickly, then do not be lazy to read a good tutorial on Microsoft Word. They are, of course, quite thick, but the result will surpass all expectations.
For the lazy, I can offer my full video course on Microsoft Word. It is specially created for training from scratch to full development of the program. But viewing all 40 lessons is not enough - you need to try everything in parallel. That's when you stop wasting time searching for information on the Internet.

Many face the problem of background printing. I did not find a clear answer to the question why the background is printed incorrectly in Word 2003. I offer my own way to solve this problem.

Separately, it is worth noting that you can make the background in Word in several ways and in each case the appearance of the document will be visually different. We will tell about each of these methods below.
This method allows you to make a page in Word color and for this it is not necessary that it already contained the text. Everything you need can be printed or added later.
1. Go to the “Design” tab ( “Page Layout” in Word 2010 and previous versions; in Word 2003, the necessary tools for this purpose are in the “Format” tab ), click on the “Page Color” button located in the “ Page Background .

Change the background behind the text
In addition to the background that fills the entire area of a page or pages, you can change the background color in Word only for text. For these purposes, you can use one of two tools: “Text selection color” or “Fill” , which can be found in the “Home” tab (formerly “Page Layout” or “Format” , depending on the version of the program used).
In the first case, the text will be filled with the color you selected, but the distance between the lines will remain white, and the background itself will begin and end in the same place as the text. In the second, a piece of text or the entire text will be filled with a solid rectangular block that will cover the area occupied by the text but end / start at the end / beginning of the line. Filling in any of these methods does not apply to the fields of the document.
