The world rejoices as Microsoft Access gets a new icon

Finally, and quietly, Microsoft Access has been given a new icon.  We know people have worried about this omission <not>.

A few months ago, Microsoft released new icons for Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Outlook to a collective yawn across the globe.

Now they’ve slipped the MS Access icon into the latest Office Insiders build.

No love for Publisher

Publisher still uses the old-form icon. Presumably Microsoft is waiting for all the excitement to stop before unleashing another little graphic.


As we said last time Microsoft released new Office icons: if we were more apathetic, we’d be in a coma.
