All of a sudden all my office products look like they have an old style. Also word documents open off screen and I have to move them back and it gets very annoying. Attached is how word looks. How can I set it back to the default 2010 look?

Thanks

It looks like your machine has switched to Windows 7 Basic rather than Aero.

Go to the desktop>right click> choose personalise

Are you on Basic? If so pick the theme called windows 7 and it should go back to normal

No, that is not the problem. It is only with Office and nothing else.

might be a display setting if not theme setting.

start > type in 'windows colors' and select the first on the list.  Under Item > select 3d objects.  For color 1 and 2 make a note of the settings and choose a different setting.

If the setting is related to color, then go to file - > Options - > General


Choose color scheme to 'Silver' and also check both the check boxes above that.

l33tf0b -  I do not have an option to change color 2

abdulalikhan - I already tried setting it to silver and to blue. Both look the same and do not solve the problem.

I have had air video installed for a year now, but when I uninstalled it that fixed my problem. Not sure why air video messed everything up. Have not even used it in months.
