Have you ever had trouble distinguishing which tools where in which tool bars when you have several active ones docked to the top of your Arc window?  I have.  If there were an option to shade the background behind each toolbar toolset a different color or have a outline or 'cartouche' that defined the boundary of each tool bar, that would help.

Actually there are 4 vertical dots on the left side of each tool bar. and a Drop down arrow on the right side of every tool bar.  That helps distinguish the sides of a tool bar.

however, I do agree they could use an outline or something to make them more visible.  However, the more color and detail you add to the normal can have an effect on your performance.

ArcGIS Desktop is in mature support and will be retired March 1, 2026 so we won’t be considering this idea. We recommend that you migrate to ArcGIS Pro, our fully supported desktop GIS application. See Migrate from ArcMap to ArcGIS Pro for more information. Thank you for taking the time to share your ideas. We truly appreciate your contributions to continuously improving the software to help you do your work and look forward to what ideas you have for ArcGIS Pro.
