> Update From 2007 To 2016 Changes Formats, Access 2016

I have a database that I built in Access 2007 and today I copied it to Access 2016 and it looks horrible.

The database appears to run OK, which I was surprised at but font colours and button colours have changed and button sizes and form borders have changed and the new version just looks messy.

I understand there are a lot more format options in 2016 and everything can be put right with time but I wondered if there was a way to copy my original database over and save a lot more of the original formatting.

Thank you in advance for any suggestions.

You may find it has imposed a default theme.
If so, you could either disable themes or use a different theme to match your preferred style.
