    How to add a yellow notebook background to a Word document?

    How can I add a yellow notebook background - a yellow paper with black lines, just like in all notes apps on smartphones - to a Word document? Will it require a template or something, or simply can be done with Word?

    TIA

    Every link directs to a guide for Word on Office for Mac, not for Windows. And, I can't find any Notebook Layout option in the view menu.

    I've tried to search for stationery, but couldn't find any yellow notepad template.

    Doesn't help. Every link from the first answer leads to the same page, the main Office Online template page, and not to any yellow notepad template.

    Have you tried just Googling for images of notepads? I found plenty of them, many of which didn't have copyright restrictions. If you're graphically inclined, you can create a page-shaped image with a yellow background color and a horizontal and vertical few lines. You could even scan a piece of yellow notepad paper.

    Once you have an image (and they really seem to be everywhere), insert into header. Set wrapping option to behind text, stretch to all page edges, and close the header.

    Every Word document involves a template.
    Are we talking Word here? or the NotePad Program?
    There are not such options for the NotePad Program; that is plain text.

    Word for the Mac has a Notebook view not in Word for Windows.

    I found lots of links to Windows resources by using Google as recommended by RetierdGeek.
    Here are two: OfficeAnswersForum, How to Make Lined Paper (in Word)

    KMurdock has told you how to create your own.
