Office 2010 Appearance and Tweaking

    Recently upgraded to Office 2010 and am VERY unhappy with the appearance of
    the various apps - especially Outlook. Three questions please:

    1) Other than the 3 included "skins", is there any way to change the color
    scheme? It is both "blah" and hard to read. I'd like a bright color with nice
    contrasting text.

    2) Is there any way to get smaller icons on the main ribbon? The ribbon
    simply takes up too much room.

    3) Is it possible to customize any of the icons (create a new one or alter
    the existing image)?

    Thanks in advance for any assistance or information.

    To quickly minimize the Ribbon, double-click the name of the active tab.
    Double-click a tab again to restore the Ribbon.

    Keyboard shortcut - To minimize or restore the Ribbon, press CTRL+F1.

    Far right, next to question mark help icon - small up or down looking icon
    to minimize or restore.
