Microsoft is coming out with a new visual look for its Office suite in order to better blend in with Windows 11. The new look has been rolled out to around 50% of users, so if you don’t have it as an option yet, you will soon. Below is a screen shot.
How it works
We know that change can be uncomfortable. To help with your transition, you can access the new experience in the Coming Soon pane and try it out early. In Word, Excel, PowerPoint, or OneNote, just open the Coming Soon pane from the megaphone icon in the upper right. You can read more about the visual refresh changes, and toggle on Try the new experience to apply the setting to all your Office desktop apps. You can also toggle off the refresh and go back to the classic experience.
