Same here, same here. Not only Office 2019, but Office 2016 and 2013.
If you wish the classic UI like before, just change this value to false
as far as i know, the appearance of your office apps including Word and PowerPoint are not fully controled under version number, update channel nor this registry key, but for Microsoft decided to push to your devices. And the mechanism of this operation possibly is that Mircrosoft push contents to all users way before they awared of, usually month ago, then an algorithm decided to turn a switcher on and off to when the time these contents will be applied to, and that's the time you had found it changed.
That's the reason sometimes we all have the same version number on both Office and Windows, but someone has the new UI and others don't.
back to your question, WHY does it not applied consistently across all these office apps?
frankly, I don't know. That's basically a pure inner-core matter decided by Microsoft. Perhaps they think Excel is a high-end software for data engineer or data analysis, or it's just a bug. who knows...
Thanks for taking the time to provide a detailed response :-)
Hi, for me there are still differences after changing that. This only happens in excel.
Do you have the same issue?
Same and that's what it supposed to. Its name explain everything, Microsoft.Office.UXPlatform.FluentSVRefresh
Dedicated fluent design refresh aka windows 11 style.
There is no other way to come back to original?
Other than redistribute all Office apps, no~
