How can we improve Excel for Windows (Desktop Application)?

Bring back the ability to design your own button image

Excel 2003 & prior allowed the user to add a button to their toolbar and then edit/redesign the image thereon by changing the colour of the pixels. However, since XL2007 users are limited to a very poor choice of fixed images that requires an obscure mind to relate them to any macro they create!

Hi Col,

Even in versions of Excel (Office really) after 2003, you can still add your own custom icons. Zack has linked to a couple resources below that outline how to do this.

Cheers,
Dan [MS]
