I have 2 list web parts on the same page, both are using 'summary toolbar' type.

However, one web part has this style:

enter image description here

And another like this:

enter image description here.

It's not a big deal to me but my manager wants them the same...

Is there a way to make them consistent? Same result using Chrome, Edge, and IE.

    What is the list template used for the web part with green sign? Is there any grouping or different table style than default is used in view? Nov 9, 2018 at 1:52

This mainly depends on the current selected view and the current toolbar type

In case,

  • The selected view is Summary view,
  • The toolbar type is summary toolbar or any other type else No toolbar

You will get the old add new,

Note: after selecting Summary view, summary toolbar, you should stop editing the page to get it reflected with the old add new link.

Unfortunately, when you edit the list view web part, you can't specify which view is currently selected, and it shows by default Current View

So, it's not a good solution to remove the web part and add it again because you don't know which view was selected!

The recommended workaround to change the selected view to any other view else Summary view


The new item image with the green plus sign is a SharePoint 2010 or 2007 version. You need to remove the web part and add that again on the page to get new item image with the blue plus sign.
