How do I customize the colors for the words "BROWSE" and "PAGE" only? These words are in the ribbon at the top left corner of the SharePoint site.

enter image description here

I tried using the method of editing a Palette(number).spcolor file in SharePoint Designer 2013, which can be found under the path "../../_catalogs/theme/15", but I realized that editing the words "BROWSE" and "PAGE" from there, will cause all the fonts in my entire site to be affected. I only need those 2 words to have a different color.

  • You can use this as a refference:<br> Exemple Topic Dec 21, 2017 at 9:57
  • Use browser F12 developer tools to get the correct selector id or class. Then use CSS to give color to the selector. Heather Solomon made a list with most SP CSS selectors: link

You can use the following CSS code to change it:

#Ribbon\.Read-title > .ms-cui-tt-a > .ms-cui-tt-span {
    color: red!important;

#Ribbon\.WikiPageTab-title >.ms-cui-tt-a > .ms-cui-tt-span {
    color: red!important;

If you want to change that on the entire site, you can add the code into the master page of the site.
