Wierd black environment

Posted 05 November 2017 - 02:55 AM

Hi

When I open my Visual Studios 2015 it looks like is has looked for many years throughout the different versions I have used. It is basically the same colors as windows: Whit and grey.

But when I reopen my project it gets all black and the menus are all differnt. I can't find the toolbox for example. Is there a way to have it look like I'm used to?

That's actually Blend for Visual Studio, which is used specifically for XAML-based interfaces. I'm not sure what you mean by "reopen" here. Do you click on the solution icon?

I meant that, after closing the application, when I double-click the solution in windows it opens in that weird way.

So do you know I can do to get my old environment back?

This is what you would do on Windows 10.

Right-click the solution file, then pick "Open with" --> "Choose another app." From the list, choose "Visual Studio 2015" and also check "Always use this app to open .sln" files. Then click OK.

I hope that helps.
