My office got updated to 2110 version and with this update something got broken with window title bars in all office apps that I use (Excel, Word... I didn't restart yet OneNote but it'll suffer probably too)... The window title bars are irritating thick/big/wide - whatever to call it. But when I click "File" on ribbon menu the title bar is back to normal - nicely thin/normal.
Is there option to Restore "normal, thin window title bars"?
Check the screenshot - the blue line I draw at edge of the window title bar (you can also see the thickness of window title bar by looking at the highlighted buttons (close and user)).
I have Win10 pro v2004. Office (excel version in example: 2110 )
Or this is because of this ugly Windows 11 looks (this is my personal opinion).

@Vasil MichevOffice365 updated on my PC today. I have mouse mode enabled (and have flicked between mouse/touch to test). The new title bar seems double thickness in any mode and looks infantile (and takes up more space). I only came across this post searching for how to get the title bar back to a normal standard thickness.

Yes, I do feel same. MS don't give a cr-p about user, as long they can suck our money (from business they drain even more of it). I had so many times thought :"what an idiot decided about removing/adding some annoyance (a.k.a. feature) and it can't be turned on or off..." (and add some phrases to it that are not written here because they'd break some rules of this forum).
I personally hate how the crapple products looks and works (don't work) too, so seeing this in w11 make me to not like it too, not to mention how they remove some good features for "idiot-proof"... (Yes, I'm in Linux,Android,ATI,AMD camp :p ) I won't go into what I think about those requirements of w11 - this is not place for it, nor I feel like writing about it...
But back to ms-office, since 2 or 3 last updates they started to break more and more, I had to disable hardware accel. in excel because when I worked on xls (not xlsx) file it freezed the grid and it's window (I could click cell, edit it, save it using keyboard shortcuts and "memory" (what, where pop-up and in what order), but screen was not refreshed at all (no dialogs shown, no changes, on selection whatsoever) - so I saw still that same "window" from before freeze moment. After closing and reopening excel (and file) I could see those changes...)

@Susan BradleyThank you for that! It's sorted the rather infantile looking super wide bar.
The worry of course is that is going to be an upcoming feature that we won't be able to remove when it goes live.

@Susan BradleyThanks a lot! That worked. Still, I'll be phasing out of Office since this seems to be an upcoming forced "update". Time to try other software, since I'll be having to adapt anyway...

Both versions use from 25% to 33% percent before you see first line of mails, not really good for executive laptops with short vertical space,

@Susan Bradley Very nice! I hate when new "features" that I didn't want are added by default. Your solution worked, but somehow the Quick Launch toolbar was moved below the ribbon. I had to select "show above ribbon" to put it back where it belongs. Frakking Microsoft!
