Data Connectors are Origin's newest import mechanism. As users have transitioned to Connectors in place of the older X-Function based routines, OriginLab made the decision to re-code the Import Single ASCII and Import Excel buttons on the Import toolbar to give direct access to Text/CSV and Excel Data Connectors. This change was made with the release of Origin 2021b.
To roll back this change so that one or both of the older X-Function based import routines are re-associated with these toolbar buttons, change the value of system variable @TIB.
@TIB = 1; // open impASC with "Import Single ASCII" button
@TIB = 2; // open impMSExcel with "Import Excel" button
@TIB = 3; // reconnect both impASC and impMSExcel to toolbar buttons
