  • Hi,

    I tested your problem in my environment and I didn't get your problem.

    As shown in the following picture:

    Did this issue only appear with Excel? How about other Office programs?

    Did this issue appear in all Excel files?

    In my opinion, first your computer may be low on memory and may not have enough memory to run all your open programs and Aero themes.

    Then the hardware configuration or screen resolution of your computer may have changed. If the minimum hardware requirements are not met it may not run Aero themes.

    I suggest you check these probable problems in your environment.

    Then please refer to this link and try the method in it:

    Any updates please let me know and I'm glad to help you.
