Finding more modern updated GUI controls like buttons, combobox, etc for Visual Basic 6

Is there a way to update the look and feel of certain controls in VB6.  Can I update the buttons, combobox, etc in VB6 to have a more modern look?  If so, where would I find updated GUI buttons, dropdowns, etc..    And then how would I update the software to use them?

Thanks.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

No, I'm saying that I don't know any way of doing what you want. You need to rewrite the app in a modern language like VB.Net.

Probably it will be really a hard one, you may try to find 3rd party tools if they are still available.

Funny that something similar was asked years ago:

That’s a shame.  Something so small as aestheticss makes a big difference sometimes for the end user
