  • Patch Lady – a new ribbon for Office

    Posted on October 17th, 2018 at 23:57 Susan Bradley Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    In the last few weeks you may have received a new ribbon bar look.  It’s a bit whiter and has more contrast than the old icons.  If you think you accidentally clicked on something and think you messed up a view, it’s actually the new look being rolled out to some users.  If you want to go back to the more classic view, you can flip your click to run patching schedule from monthly to semi-annual channel.

    There is a user voice item that has (at the time of this posting) 575 votes.

    Bottom line, it’s not you, it’s them.  You didn’t do anything other than use your computer and get updates silently in the background.
