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.

Themes: Colorful, Dark Grey, Black, White.
The lack of themes or ability to customize or change to something that is easier to read is disappointing. It would be nice if there was a way to customize this as I find the all white layout (yes...even on the colorful option) to be too bright. It's difficult to read and discern where things are. It would be great if there were other options - especially for anyone with a visual impairment, or migraine triggers.
Can we have a lighter colored grey for the office theme?
Taking the page colour option as you see in word, and enabling it in outlook as an accessibility option.
Stationary is only about outgoing mail, and many companies ban its use. I would like to change the colour of the emails I am ready to assist with my disability.
Bonjour. Il serait intéressant de pouvoir choisir une couleur comme arrière plan. Le choix de couleur étant le bleu par défaut, il ne serait pas compliqué je pense, de permettre aux utilisateurs de choisir une couleur parmi un panel existant ..
A UI that uses greater contrast so I can visually see the difference between panes and icons quickly.
I'd like to see more options for color customization. Not crazy about the blinding white, grey, bright blue or black as my only choices. Wish I could have more choices over how it looks.
we should be able to add images in the background as we are able to do in Win 10 Mail. it is much nicer to watch a scenery in the background than just a blank space or the full programe of the week. the current option of adjusting the theme with just a simple drawing in the upper right corner is hardly visible and offers nothing

And I'd like to put Outlook back to its old yellow color. Now both Word and Outlook are blue, too confusing.
I absolutely hate the latest update look. As a consequence, when updating the look and feel, allow the user a preview and to decide to keep or discard the thematic portion of the updates and stay with my current look and feel. Update the underlying functions, but SHOW ME and TELL ME what they are.
Well, I would like to be able to change the colour of my outlook as I please and not you deciding it for me.
Your new office themes are a joke. New isn't always better. Go back to the vibrant colors & themes. I just downloaded Office 365 on 2 different computers. The computers are exactly the same except one has Windows 8.0 & the other has Windows 8.1. Outlook on the computer with Windows 8.0 has a much better theme & vibrant colors & icons. Easier on the eyes, easier to read emails, easier & vibrant Ribbon Bar. We need more options & ones that have vibrant colors, vibrant icons, easy to see themes. Go Back please. I've been using 2007 until today & it was much better on the eyes.
I agree Microsoft should start considering what end users say, and take notice. In fact, they should do what competition has already been doing for years (Google, Apple, ...).
Nothing else to add
Добавьте пож темы - 4 темы - это позор! - не одна не подходит. Пусть пользователь сам выбирает цвета.
In Black colour scheme the attachment icon in the Inbox view is almost invisible. Make it a lighter colour.

Add ability to put a Theme for whole outlook backdrop, like Google when theirs opens you can have a beautiful picture as background and for contacts, tasks, calender you have a side bar so you dont have to have multiple screens open and it is all centrally located.
Be able to change the colour of the menu bars or the top bar as per our choices. It does not have to be patterned or anything, just a solid colour.
For example, you can change the colour of the start bar to match with the background, why cant we do the same to outlook?
Please and thank you <3

In the inbox (or any other folder) you can select the 'paperclip'-column to indicatie if a mail has attachements. In the Black Theme this indicator is black, on a black background. Therefore it is hardly readable.
Solution is simple: make the paperclip white, the same as in the column header.

Under Dark Back Colour the Message Area should also be black in Outlook Desktop Client
It is unacceptable that we are being forced to use an color/icon/theme set that you have decided we MUST use. Please give us the option to change to older icon sets. If you would REALLY listen to us you might start to understand that what we really want is CHOICES. Some may like the new but many of us think it looks like a preschooler created them.
