Change theme in Yahoo Mail (or switch back to classic)

Pick another Yahoo Mail theme Just like earlier versions of the service, the new Yahoo Mail allows you to switch theme on-the-fly, using custom colors and background pictures, just like you can change theme in Windows. As before, Yahoo goes with a conservative choice of blue, which is sure not to offend anyone's taste! This tutorial explains how to test a new look-and-feel and change theme, or a higher contrast to make things easier to see on screen. What you see on the screenshot is just a small selections of themes you can pick from for your account.

Tip: if you are trying to change theme for email messages you send, reply-to, or forward, please see instead our "Pick stationery / custom background in Yahoo Mail" tutorial.

Switch Yahoo Mail theme

Follow these simple steps to try another color scheme for your emails:

Once you change it, this setting is save in your account, not just on the computer and web browser you happen to be using at the time: in other words, if you check your emails from work and from home, the same theme will automatically be used in both places.

Tip: if you cannot see the changed theme, try reloading the page (press Ctrl+R on Windows or Linux, or Command+R on Mac OS X).

Tip # 2: To switch back to the "classic theme" for the new Yahoo Mail, select the third preview swatch, called "Blue" - because none of the themes in the first row use a background image, they will load faster on a slow internet connection.
