    Anonymous You're missing the whole point of the suggestion. The idea is to replace 3 mouse clicks with one, or, ideally, the addition of one new icon with its own keyboard shortcut so that no mouse clicks are required at all.

    This would save so much time and annoyance. Clearly, someone missed this during the design of the interface.

    Apparently, placing the toolbar below the ribbon is a temporary fix. Once MS pushes the latest Office 365 update to you, you will lose the colors. This is what is being reported anyway. If, on the other hand, you have a standalone version of Office, perhaps you will not lose the colors. I am hoping someone will be able to confirm this as I will cancel my 365 subscription and purchase the standalone Office product if this is the only way to get the colors back. They really seem to have no idea just how terrible these monochrome buttons are. I am constantly wasting extra seconds to make sure the icon I am about to click on is the one I want. Even after using this new scheme for several months now. This equates to hours of lost productivity on a monthly basis. On the upside, this completely unnecessary pain that has been foisted upon us has encouraged me to learn even more shortcuts. Why Microsoft has decided to make the Excel UI as sterile and boring as google's is beyond me. Perhaps google planted one of their UI devs inside Microsoft's excel team just to **** us off. Lol

    The white theme style no longer works for those who have received the latest update to their excel 365 account. I know, because changing themes used to work for me, but as soon as I received the rollout it stopped making a difference :( If anyone has figured out how to get the colours back after the patch, please let me know!

    I hope Microsoft understands that for every person complaining here in this forum about this ridiculous and completely unnecessary step backward, actually, make that giant leap backward, in terms of basic usefulness, there are 10,000 more excel users sitting there right now wondering wtf happened to my buttons and why do they all look the same. I have spent years perfecting my QAT bar and now I have to totally re-learn it. The executives who green-lighted these changes should be repurposed and replaced with people who actually use excel for their livelihood. This stupid trend toward minimalism and 'simplification' foisted on us by Google etc is such a pain ********** and now MS is copying them in this. It's just so asinine, I wish they would wake tf up and stop listening to the latest UX/UI 'savant' who doesn't know squat about actually working with Excel all day, everyday because our jobs depend on it.
