Provide a feature or revert the icon color to old one or provide different color icons for Office applications
Sorry to say but don't like the new icons especially the fact that Word and Outlook are both in blue shades they look to much the same when sitting side by side on the Taskbar - which if your background is also blue they just really don't stand out that well. Really they need to be at the least different colours for each Office Icon in order to stand out.
This is exactly the same complaint I have since my company upgraded. I have some visual issues and rely on color to help me quickly navigate from one thing to another, and to keep track of what I have open. The yellow in the old 2010 version, which is what I had prior to the upgrade, was just fine. I also appreciated that the backgroud had a gray tint to it. I would have just kept 2010, which was working fine, but sadly didn't have a choice.
