I am running Windows 7 and I just upgraded my MS Office from Office 2010 to Office 2013.  There are two things that I can't figure out:

1.  In Outlook, when I go to my Contacts (now called "People") there are two different Contacts lists in my folder bar along the left side of the screen.  One has my username in parentheses next to it, and it's blank - no entries.  The other one has my contacts and works just fine.  Outlook defaults to the empty one, which I can't delete, forcing me to click on the other one every time I want to go to "People".  It's just a minor annoyance, but if there's a way to get rid of the other "People" folder I would appreciate it.

2.  Office comes with three available "Themes", all either boring or annoying (or both).  White, Grey, and Dark Grey ... what were they thinking?  Is there any way to adjust the colors to make them more interesting?
