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.
There should be new themes and coloring. We should be able to sort the folders into color groups. Different e-mail addresses must be in different colors, different fonts, etc.
add complete dark theme in word and powerpoint also

Mail too white & light. Makes it difficult to find things. Was happy with the way Outlook 2010 looked - can we have options to create our own settings for backgrounds & borders etc
The buttons for the new Windows 10 version of Outlook for "Accept Meeting, Reply All" etc. are too faint and need a subtle highlight by changing the button background color to grey or something rather than just white which matches the rest of the background.
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?
