Revert the icons to the multi-colored versions!
This is an Adobe CC wide issue but AE is where I notice it the most.
Please revert the icons to the multi-colored versions! It makes no sense to make them the same color when the "themes" break down beyond video and photo use. I used the colors to quickly locate the software I needed to open, now I have a taskbar full of purple and have to squint to tell which letters I am clicking on.
It seems like a very poor design choice that was likely made by the boardroom, not the creative team, and I beg you to change the icons back - or at least give US the option to have the multiple colors instead of mono-purple, which I'll add looks horrendous on a dark theme display.

So true... the colours now are the same for all the app... When I try to switch from an app to the other it's so confusing

With the type the same color, the icons [Ae] [Me] [Au] look very similar on the black Windows 10 taskbar.
