Is there any way to change the ridiculously irrational look of teams?

Space between rows is many times to big and all the items are organized in such way that even having a few channels make it impossible to see all of them at once. 

 

Among many things that suck in this software, this is the most obvious and discouraging people from using it as a communication platform.

In what way don't you see the channels you'd like to see? If you favorite the channels, they will be visible to you always! Same goes with the teams themselves

Solution

Hi,

You can't customize the client much. You can select different themes (click on your profile image in the upper left corner and select Settings).

image.pngYou can also zoom out and in, that could change the distance between rows, click on your profile image in the upper left corner and use zoom options.

 

You can also use the Uservoice to request changes or see if someone else requested the same then you can vote for that change. https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com

There is a uservoice already for this and it's been a pretty big topic for awhile now. Many people do not like the look of Teams and they just said they are going to work on a compact version for people that choose to set it that way. ETA is probably a ways out. As Linus said, zoom in and out, (Ctrl + mouse wheel), Profile pic > Zoom section etc. can help but there still is a lot of wasted space in Teams.

Here is the uservoice, go add your vote: https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/17408641-compact-mode
I'm not sure if it's the same for everyone but every time I Exit out of Teams and restart, the Theme I picked (Dark), is reset to the Default and I have to choose it again. The same behavior throughout all my devices.

Hi,

I tested to change to dark theme on my computer, quit teams and then start it again and the dark theme was still there. Try to reinstall Teams, uninstall it first and the remove all files from %localappdata%\Microsoft\Teams %appdata%\Microsoft\Teams, after that install Teams client again.
