Add more color choices for office themes
Add some darker color choices for outlook themes.
BLACK and DARK GRAY themes where the title bar maintains the signature color by product
Help describes changing the color, but the ONLY option is blue. Please add more options!

I was just forced to "upgrade" by my workplace, and all of the colorful/white/dark grey themes for Outlook just hurt my eyes, and making it really hard to see anything. Personalized color palatte would be ideal.

I would like to suggest that you must have a print option on Outlook app to print emails and downloads from emails
everything is already said, I'll just say it once again from myself: Microsoft, please add more color themes to Office, OR modify the existing ones.
In Outlook, which I use most of your products, none of the 2 "light" themes provides contrast depiction of the email that I'm currently browsing in the email feed. Light blue on the white background, especially in the bottom of the screen, and/or when it's sunny in the office, becomes just vanishing.
And yes, generally, the existing themes are too "lifeless".

Hello Microsoft ,
if you can not create new color schemes for office application please bring old color schemes which are available in office 2007 or 2010.
current color schemes for office applications are too dull to bear. We feel very bored with these colors.
We need good choices

Please add more themes! The 4 choices are drab, boring or too white, like everyone has said. Why has MS not responding? It's 2020, the pandemic year, and we need good color choices.
I agree with the MANY comments below....Black, Grey, White as the only options kills me. The white is too bright, and Grey and Black are too drab and make for a poor user experience. Please give us more options. With actual colors.
When will Microsoft listen to all the Good people on this feed back
please make a personalized color pallet so we can get it better like in the old Office 2010 all works ok here
the “color full” you have is just another White
Microsoft have increasingly made everything they touch worse over the years. Windows 10 (I've spent some time adding software, hacking the registry and more to make it useable); feeling like I needed to learn programming in order to customise the Office 2019 installation so I don't have everything installed automatically (because Microsoft don't give you a choice by default), and now finding myself faced with a blinding white or a choice of 'dark' grey or black background. Its time to look for an alternative office suite.
Stop making everything pure white. The new style cosmetics are not good for people with cognitive issues.
I second, third and fourth all of this comments relating to the continuing lack of colour option choices within Office 365. As a Windows and Office and One-Drive user and Microsoft shareholder I really am surprised this topic gets such a non-existent response from Microsoft. Step up to the plate!
Now it's 2020 and still no additional choices. Our company just switched to Office 365 ProPlus. Can't see any difference between "colorful" and "white". Black and gray are too dark. The others are too light with very limited contrast. Is anything in the works?
it's 2019 and we have a choice of 4 "color" combinations with zero customization in terms of windows, borders, etc. i guess black, white and gray are all just shades, so actually 1 color combination - in your face primaries with white.
how are other products able to provide full customization of colors for borders, menus, status bars, workspaces, etc? surely microsoft is capable of this.
Is anybody from Microsoft actually listening... new themes!!

Fo real. Dis **** cray. Add some varietee and holla back yo.
My eyes are suffering with the bland white or grey washed out look. I want Blue. I hate the dark colour so painful on the eyes. MORE CHOICES PLEASE

The current color schemes are either too dark or do not offer enough contrast to be easily read. Colorful and white are too washed out with the gray font color. The dark themes are too dark. Doesn't Microsoft do any studies on proper UI design? Some people, such as my daughter, have issues with certain colors and combinations. For me, I'm noticing more eye strain and I have trouble distinguishing some characters. A recent password had the combination "r", ":" and "t". with r:t it's already hard to pick up the colon as opposed to a period, with the muted colors it's doubly so. I definitely prefer the colors of the earlier releases of Office. If given a choice, I would either stay on a previous version of Office or move to a different provider.
