I'm working in VS 2019, C#. I've looked at other language platforms in the Studio.

Why are all the buttons and input tools "flat"? How can I get back that nice 3D look
like back in the old VB?


What I have tried:

tried several setting under option. Form properties, different languages, different platforms

Because that's how the OS has evolved: the Aero look from Win7 was dropped a long time ago ... If you run your code on older OSes, the flat look will go "3D".

Well that just sucks. Thanks for the info!
Maybe you can use Krypton Suite[^]

Thanks for this, Rick! I remember old-school drooling over these years ago. :)

It sure seems to be popular according to the upvotes on Slant, haven't used it myself though as I like doing things the hard way and made my own custom controls :)
