I upgraded from Office 2010 to Office 2021. The dark gray office theme is fairly easy to read, but it would be nice to use my own custom colors. Also I hate it that Office 2021 overrides the Windows 10 settings for the overall window frame. Is there an addin or some way to get around this?
  1. Open a new message. On the Options tab, click Colors, and pick the color set you want.
  2. To create your own set of colors, click Customize Colors.
  3. Click the button next to the theme color you want to change (for example, Accent 1 or Hyperlink), and then pick a color under Theme Colors.
  4. To create your own color, click More Colors, and then pick a color on the Standard tab or enter numbers on the Custom tab.
  5. Repeat this for all the colors you want to change.
  6. In the Name box, type a name for the new theme colors, and then click Save.

This applies to colors for email messages, right? I'm looking for a way to customize the overall colors of all parts of Outlook 2021 on my PC.
