Windows 7: Stupidity signed Microsoft or... !

Stupidity signed Microsoft or... !

Hello everybody,

I'm trying to change the color scheme (interface color) of outlook 2010 but I notice that the colors list is very limited (3 colors only) and the most striking is that the new color I chose will be also applied on all other office programs (word, powerpoint, excel...)! What a ridiculous idea behind this?
I'm can't believe that MS's developers could be "so stupid" to not let the user chose another color imposed by MS and not be able to apply it only on the program we want!
I wish to have different interface colors for my different office programs (each program with its own specific color), why I can't to customize it?
Is there any way to do so or is this part of the chronic symptoms of MS's skills?

Thank you

Your 3 colors in outlook are the same as mine.
To me I am not there to customize it as the info in there is more important.
I am in and out of there quickly.
Sorry for my not reading your ? more thoroughly.

MS Office Word : Set Document Color
Sorry again, I don't ask "how to change color in word", I know how to do it, but I'm asking WHY when I change color in Word, this will make the same change in Excel, powerpoint and other office programs too"!
When you switch color in word interface to black for example, this will make the interface black too in PowerPoint, excel and publisher...!
Personnaly, I'd prefer to have, for exmple, black color in word, blue color in powerpoint, silver in excel and....so on, different color with each program, but not the same color for all programs!

Making the same interface's color for all office program is stupid idea in my view. So, I'm asking why user shouldn't be able to customize colors in office programs individually?
Do you got this now?
Suppose you have 4 documents opened and you are working on at the same time, you navigate between them: Word, Powerpoint, Excel and publisher. In this case, the 4 documents will have the same interface color (ex. black) !
This will not let you to visually and quickly distinguish them! Instead, if each program has a different interface color, you will recognize its documents easier, just by throwing an eye on it!

Hoping you got what I mean!

You are changing the User Interface for office 2010 NOT just for Word therefore you will find that the changes will affect ALL applications that use the interface.
