Is there a visual cue (like color) in Azure Storage Explorer to signify that a user is accessing Prod vs. Dev or QA?

Our company wants to have a visual reminder for people using Azure Storage Explorer that they are in the Production environment vs. Dev or QA. Is there any way to color the background green or red (or any other visual cue) to remind people which environment they are in so they don't accidentally make changes in the wrong environment?

    After some research regarding your request-
    This is not possible as of today. The coloring solution can't guarantee for any unwanted changes. You should look into using different access permissions for the production environment vs. Dev or QA environment. You can use different SAS permissions (on Azure storage service side) to give read-only, or read/write/execution permissions, etc. Please take a look at the SAS permission documentation -

    Hope this helps. Please let us know if you have any further questions and we will be glad to assist you further. Thank you!
