MS Office 2013 - How do I increase contrast or go back to 2010?

    Question

  • The Office 2013 interface looks terrible.  The loss of contrast makes it very difficult to process information quickly, particularly when switching back and forth between applications.  Will Microsoft be providing a fix soon?  Is it possible to reset to the 2010 "high contrast" screens?

  • I really wish they would make a change.  I work with a laptop (desktop replacement) and an external monitor.  I like a big monitor and at 24" size it is so light it gives me a headache...do you know if there are any plans to make a change to it?  

    I hope so, I may have to go to a smaller external monitor (fortunately, have another one), but I like the larger one!!

  • At this time, no, it's not going to change in this version. Have you adjusted the brightness on your monitor? I found turning brightness down about 20% helped a lot.
