The new icons are smaller on win10 and therefore less readable. i assume that a color of the letters (ps, etc) represents a group of apps - blue for ps, lr etc. - what a dumb idea! color helps people the differentiate things - now its gone. as often in recent years big software firms change their ui to cool looking, but not user friendly ui. it seams people with common sense are dying out .... dear adobe developers, i use your programs to be creative, the ui doesnt help if it is creative by itself, it has to provide help do work easily ... do you get, i dont think so, otherwise you would focus on real improvements and not designing bad ui's ...

I think the logo should be attractive so that it can attract user on his webpage. Sometime the color combination makes some bad looks so need to make attractive color in logo.

Sometimes I can start the application I want to start. 😞 Extremely bad decision that all icons are blue. 😞

Oh really? That's how my taskbar looks like now. Very convenient, very easy to find, very optimized! Thank you Adobe!

Agree. I was thinking to write the same post but I see this topic already risen.
I understand designers to make something new, but this has to be convenient also.
New icons don't look like icons, rather like knocked-out tooth among other teeth. Previous icons with the frame around were much better.

Please return for previous icons, they were better, I'm telling this as a designer.
