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

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).
You 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

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.

@Chris Webb- The Compact Mode thread is a microcosm of all that's wrong with Microsoft's interaction with the UserVoice community. Misleading statuses. Lack of trust. Misunderstood requirements. Long silences. Lack of feedback.
I won't repeat my rant here; take a look at https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/microsoft-teams/why-is-the-uservoice-rarely-updated-by-micros... for the full account.
It's also a fine example of the resistance to allowing users any meaningful customisation of their UI experience. There is One True UI and that is what you shall use.
Need a different font because you're dyslexic? Tough. The One True Font is the one you shall use.
Need a different notification sound because you're working in a noisy environment? Tough. The One True Notification Sound is the one you shall use.
Need a smaller window for your chat so you can see the other program you're discussing? Tough. The One True Chat Layout is the one you shall use.
Need more space to see more of the chat? Tough. The One True Chat Column Width is the one you shall use. Have more empty margin space instead.
and so on.

@BBachrac I agree. Since the General page seems to be the default landing page when selecting a Team, I'd like to have the ability to modify the page so it is pertinent to our Team and not the blah screen as you shared. Ideally, it would be nice to be able to place Icons for the Channels on that page to make it more appealing and modern. The items listed are administrative and available on the 3 dots by the team name--don't need an ugly blotch for each of them since the admin is the only one that will use them. Teams could allow much more appealing aesthetics.
