Excel 2010 Userform Appearance on Windows 10 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Why do Excel userforms look so much better in design mode than when running on Windows 10. When in design mode, userforms are have depth, color and rounded corners. When running, they lose all of these characteristics and look terrible.

  • The Visual Basic Editor hasn't been updated - it still uses menus and toolbars, and userforms in design view look like they did in Windows 7. But when you run the userform, it uses the flat Windows 8 (and later) style. The makeover isn't complete though - controls still have some depth, and the size of check boxes and radio buttons hasn't been increased for use with mobile devices...

  • Terrible? Why the new Win 10/Office 2013 interface is soft and subtle and easy on the eyes, very 'black turtleneck industrial designer hipster cool'...hardly 'terrible'! ;-)

    My eyes are getting crappy and the newer subtle UI's drive me crazy...give me the ability to make borders and headers and buttons and fonts stand out, please!
