I have two RadButtons in a FooterTemplate of a RadGrid. The RadGrid has the Metro skin.

Both buttons showed the 'Default' skin appearance, which is the desired effect, despite not having their Skin="Default" attribute set.  I thought they would inherit the Metro skin, but I was mistaken.

However, when I changed one of the button types to LinkButton the button shows a Metro-like skin (see attached image).  How do I get the link button to have the Default skin appearance?  Setting Skin="Default" does not do the trick.

Hello Danny,

Generally the appearance of the RadButton (ButtonType="LinkButton") is different than the appearance of the RadButton (ButtonType="StandardButton"). The link buttons uses CSS3 while the standard button uses sprite image for its background image. There is, however, similarity between the appearance of both buttons in the described case - standard button with Metro skins look almost similar to the link button. Note that this is a sequence of the Metro skin in general.

If you want to approach the link button's appearance to the one of the standard button's you can apply rounded corners to it. For example:
<telerik:RadButton ID="RadButton1" runat="server" ButtonType="LinkButton" CssClass="rbRounded" Text="Click" />
