It seems that Visual Studio 2019 has picked up Visual Studio 2017's Syntax Colors. I have both Visual Studio 2019 and Visual Studio 2017 installed on my computer. I accidently opened a Visual Studio 2019 Project/Solution in Visual Studio 2017. How do I get Visual Studio 2019 Syntax Colors to display correctly again?

The first image is a screenshot of Visual Studio 2019 with what I believe is the syntax coloring of Visual Studio 2017 and the second image is a screenshot of Visual Studio Code with a visual Basic file loaded. The syntax coloring of Visual Studio Code is what I believe that the syntax coloring of Visual Studio 2019 should be like. Is there are setting I need to fix or a file I need to change?
Sincerely and Thanks.

    Hi @Marc Menzel ,

    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A!

    For your requirement, you can customize your UI and text colors.

    In addition, you can also try to use the extension: Viasfora.

    Sincerely,
    Anna
