    Is there a fix for Office 2003 versus Win10/1803?

    Has anyone seen/found a fix or patch that will allow Office 2003, specifically Excel, to work under the 1803 edition? I've got Office 2007 but really prefer the un-busy GUI of 2003.

    Thanks for any positive response.

    Hi JLOB.

    Some discussion in this thread.

    Latest update crashes Office (Excel) files.

    If by "unbusy" you mean the ribbons, try this:
    Show or hide the ribbon in Office - Office Support
