How do I change the colour of my reviewing in ms word?

I want to review changes to an MS word document but I want to be able to see what I've changed AND what the person before me has changed but both of our reviewing font colours are blue! How do I change mine to any other colour? I know it can be done because someone else's is teal!How do I change the colour of my reviewing in ms word?
The problem could originated because:

鈥?A modification on the review track change default

鈥?Share the same Author name and initials


By default, Microsoft Word uses a different color for each reviewer (maximum the first 8), probably you have change this functionality default. To restore this functionality:

Word: 2003

鈥?Select Tools %26gt; Options.

鈥?Click on the Tab labeled, Track Changes.

Under the section, Track Changes Options, resides the Color field.

鈥?Click on the drop-down list of the color option, and select "By author". This will change the color of your tracked changes.
