    Tone down the color and bring back the icons

    I dont know who's bright idea was it to have an iconless toolbar but it looks
    ugly. Please add the icons back. i know you want to give us a clean new look
    but this is a bit to clean. Give us the option to icons and text or just
    icons with no text. The icon it self told us what button does what. Some have
    a hard time reading text and they been going by icons for years. Doing this
    iconless toolbar is HUGE STEP BACK. To the early 1990s.

    Also, tone down the color sceme. Apart from it not wanting to set our color,
    the color is to bright and I can hardly stand using it.

    Also please forward this idea to the windows 7 team. Going by these leaked
    screenshots the same white toolbar with no icons has made it over to windows
    7.

    Come on now. We enjoy the clean look but at least give us better visuals.....

    Re: Tone down the color and bring back the icons

    I know man. Recent leaked shots of Windows 7 show no icons in the tool bars

    http://www.thinknext.net/archives/2268

    I dont know whos bright idea was it but its seems like we are going back to
    windows 3.1 with all text, very few icons etc.

    Microsoft, you can still have a clean UI with icons. Windows live mail
    NEEDS icons. at least give us an option. The older WLM had a clean UI. You
    got to chose a color which is what PEOPLE WANTED. The new color picker is
    way to light and the text makes it look ugly. Its almost liike having just a
    blank toolbar. I cant even find my away WLM now since you removed the icons.

    oh and forward this over tio the windows team. Tell them people want icons!

    I agree. I said that already in the past beta but they saw no need to change
    that. I think that's stupid.
