Option to Customize the Office Applications themes independently.
It would be nice if we could customize the color scheme / look and feel of the office apps independently of each other. I like my word in dark theme but One Note and Outlook in their respective colors. Now you have to choose one look wholesale for the whole system which seems strange.
Also, please add a ‘Classic Office’ Theme to render all office products in their default themes from 2003/2007/2012.
Theme customization in outlook 2019 to onward , add folder lock pin lock in outlook 2019 to onward, add video sharing in outlook 2019 to onward
Please allow option to make "FILE" bar the same color as the TITLE bar in MS Office products like in previous versions.
Outlook background is too whie and I suggest of having background colors optiions for the Top row and left column for easy navigation
Please add the ability to change background colour and brightness. Thank you, Brian
I need a "useful" theme which is not delivered by default. I have to concentrate ******* "to which window does this area belong?" rather then concentrating on my work. Why did you remove the "classic" themes like "XP" or "Win7"? Maybe they are not so nice, but they are VERY useful (if tranparency is turned off) !
It would be nice to have the office programs theme change based off the OS theme.
As many financial professionals use your Microsoft 365 software (Office applications), you should add a financial theme option.
Yes, plus the current themes are not good at all. How about some contrast? In Outlook it's impossible to see what is going on. Only the dark grey works in that regard.
An even better idea would be to let the user specify their own colors for various elements. Ex: Dark grey for back ground, Dark green for highlighted item, white for ...
The existing themes are truly awful

As a dyslexic I need to use a clear and manageable interface based on symbolic pictorial icons, this over simplified icon set is unusable for day to day work, all icons blur together and they are hard to distinguish. Frankly this approach is insulting to many who find it difficult to use and the lack of consideration and flexibility does not reflect well on Microsoft. MS again have shown that they don't really care about the usability of their products or the satisfaction of their customers
Allow us to customise the look of this awful program
Dear Outlook 365 developers,
I'm really loving Outlook 365 and the regular updates that are making the app better and better. Thank you so much.
It would be excellent if you could add the option of applying the Windows 10 accent colour to Outlook, which should result in new emails being highlighted in the Windows 10 accent colour, instead of the default blue colour of Outlook.
This would make Outlook 365 much more personal.
It would be excellent if this feature could be considered in a future update.
Thank you so much for everything. Please keep it all up!
The block screen on the left of the email that says "select an item to read" should be decorated with images, to advance the aesthetic appeal of the product.
Please provide colour options for the Office interface like the older version of Office 10.
The dull interface colours is really not complimenting the overall functionality of the program.
Why cant a user not be able to setup his unique colour options and not only the current 3 options?
As a user I would love to have the functionality of Office 365 but be able to setup a tailor made interface colour display.

When you create a new email message (outlook desktop app), go to the OPTIONS ribbon and select the THEME dropdown, you can choose a theme (Office is default, then there's Facet, Ion, Wisp, etc - all which are available in the other Office apps).
However, unlike the other Office apps, there is no way to set your preferred theme as a default so if you want to use a different theme, you need to select it manually EACH AND EVERY TIME YOU SEND AN EMAIL. Very frustrating. Can we have an option to set a default theme as we can in the other office apps?

The current theme options, while great, could use some improvement.
I like both the Dark Gray and Black much better than the Colourful and White, because at least there's some contrast. But it is still very low and makes it difficult to distinguish between menus and buttons.
***For the Dark Gray theme - please add more white space.***
Example: Mail View
The light gray background make it seem all the emails are highlighted. The categories (which I love to use) and the colours also don't pop up against this background.
Example: Calendar View
The folder pane looks very busy on the eyes. With more white added here, it'll be a lot easier to navigate. Also for the daily task list pane (below calendar/reading pane), I miss the white space like in the old version. Again, it's very hard to see colours (from the categories) against this background.
Make themes individual to programs
For example, I want Outlook to have Black (dark) theme, but I want Word, Powerpoint and Excel to have Colourful theme. It would be good if the setting could be for each program, rather than one controlling all.

Me gustaría que su software de correo electrónico contara con la posibilidad de personalizar el background con una imagen al gusto. Ya que permite una mejor personalización y ayuda al usuario a sentirse más conectado su software. Saludos
