Has Office 365 updated their tab appearances?


I have Office 365 and after a computer crash, Office 365 now opens Word with the tab area appearance looking completely different for some reason. It looks quite basic and safe-mode/ish for some reason. Powerpoint, Excel are fine and normal looking, the problem is only on Word.

I tried changing the themes but it remains. I attempted performing both quick and online repairs but the appearance still doesn’t change. Nothing happens

How it looks now (top bar is before, bottom bar is now):

    I guess I’m the only one who really likes it? Especially in Outlook, the new minimized ribbon with just the most common objects is great. Might be since I’m a fast ring insider, I’ve gotten used to it already.

    Welcome to the new Microsoft UI style.

    It looks like shit. It’s like we’re going backwards.

    I mean, if the first reaction of your users to your new UI is that “something looks off or safe modish” you know you fucked up.
