  1. There are Duplicate Shortcuts For Converting a List into Table, Let's use one them for another functionality

    A Table has a lot more functionality than a List. Although there are 6 different ways of converting a List into a Table, Excel users find it easy to do that with a shortcut. Surprisingly there are 2 shortcuts performing the same exact task:
    CTRL + T (T stands for Table) or CTRL + L (L stands for List)
    Why should we reserve 2 shortcuts for the same action? let's keep only the relatively new one CTRL + T (users are familiar with this one)
    While Assign the older shortcut CTRL + L to copying to the left (L stands…

  3. Fix the "problem with clipboard" mess

    This clipboard issue is well known to Microsoft and it can and should be fixed immediately. With all the Ph.D. programmers at its disposal, there is no excuse other than "We don't really care if you users have annoying and time wasting problems with our software. We are working on more important things and can't be bothered with trivial issues." Since we pay for Office 360, we users are entitled to product functionality, and this clipboard issue causes us problems we don't need. Please fix this issue ASAP!

  5. tabs invisible due to excel bug (macro warning seems cause)

    My tabs are invisible due to a clear bug. I can double click in the grey space below the worksheet where the tabs should show, and then change the randomly clicked tabs' name. This also changes the view to the randomly clicked worksheet. But with 11 sheets that were visible when I made the book yesterday, I do not want to randomly find the right sheet. Takes too long.
    - closing and reopening the workbook does not help
    - other workbooks in the same excel instance do show their tabs
    - a macro warning appears when opening book and i…

  7. Excel 365 Calculating thread bug

    Every time I enter a value into a cell I get a "calculating 4 threads" notification and the system starts counting up from 1%,2%,3% and so on until 100% and this process takes a hundred seconds and sometimes even more and while it calculates, Excel freezes and I cannot do anything in the file! This results in a task that should take me one hour to do, now taking me 2 hours to do!
    Same file works fine in Office 2016. I have the same issue with 3 PCs which I have tried to use Microsoft 365 Excel. Other Microsoft…

  9. The ability to turn off the ram limit in excel

    I have a system with 32gb of ram and I have a pretty large spreadsheet and when I try to accomplish or make changes I always get a memory error. I know excel isn't using all my ram and I can see that clearly in task manager. If I have 32gb of ram I should be able to utilize it to its fullest potential.

    Feedback Really needs to provide a method to create a debug/error reporting creation tool and reporting mechanism

    Many Application have an Option under Help to create such a package and then, upload it to their site.

    Please add such functionality for Excel (True, maybe ALL Microsoft Products :) )

    Your present Support Functionality under Help is Very DATED :(

  12. continue to allow updates to Window 7

    I can't upgrade to Windows 10. I have tried every single possible method I can find to avoid the C1900101-40017 error on upgrade and every method has failed. i have unplugged everything, I have booted from recovery move, I deleted all unused drivers, I have upgraded everything, multiple time, I have restored and repaired Windows and still get this error.

    I have sent Microsoft emails about this, and the only reply references me to the things I have already tried.

    Now you won't allow me to use new Excel features because your upgrades don't work despite trying everything. How fair…

  13. Do not issue updates that change advance settings. Last update turned AutoComplete back on and slowed down my large spreadsheets.

    Please do not issue updates that change non-security advanced settings. The last update apparently turned AutoComplete back ON, which renders very large spreadsheets with columns containing large amounts of text almost useless. (i.e. when entering a value in the column and moving to the next cell, Excel locks up for almost a minute trying to find something to AutoComplete with from a huge dataset before allowing the user to begin typing in the new cell). Not realizing an update would change this, a large spreadsheet quit functioning when presented during a web conference.

  14. Prevent Range Names from Duplicating when Sheet is Copied within Workbook

    Range names get duplicated when creating a copy of a sheet within a workbook. This is problematic because the same range name can now refer to two different data ranges. Changing the name of the range in the Formulas--Name Manager seems to have no effect, even though the range name and range in the Name Manager appear to be correct.

    The only way to fix this, after the copy has been made, is to open the Name Manager, delete all the duplicated range names, and then create the new range names as usual.

    Suggestions for improvement:

  15. No-frills program for more data processing in excel

    There should be a separate version of excel for running larger groups of data. I believe the limitation in current excel versions (around 1 million rows) is restricted because of all the font/shapes/extra formatting stuff that bogs down the system. Could there be a version of excel that has 1 font and no frills graphs that could process much more data?

  16. Taskbar Start app in separate Windows session

    I know that the Taskbar is a Windows issue.
    .
    But the way Office applications start and run is entirely an Office Issue. I want to know why Office 2010 and 365 work differently on the taskbar.
    .

    I've had too many cases when a file causes an application crash. If I have multiple files open in the same session, all of the documents are lost. Hence work is lost (regardless of the save options (and no I prefer not to use OneDrive) ). So I prefer to open documents and spreadsheets in separate windows sessions.
    .
    .

  18. Quick access toolbar streamlining

    When using fill color or font color, it is frustrating that when using keyboard shortcuts (after pressing alt key) i have to scroll through the entire palette to reach the color i desire. Even when added to the quick access toolbar, I still have to scroll through it.
    Changing the option on the quick access toolbar to have the fill/font color automatically change to the currently selected color.
    Alternatively/additionally, add a specific color to the quick access toolbar - which would facilitate quickly changing with multiple colors.

  20. Pocket Excel

    My users often use the calculator to take care of simple calculations. Using Excel, in contrast, lets our users experience the breadth of depth of the incredible program Excel is. Unfortunately each user prefers the calculator because it's so much faster and our keyboards have a button for it.

    If we could have a pocket version of Excel that could used for quick and simple calculations, we would really appreciate it.
    Here's how we envision it would look:
    A grid of cells (5 rows by 12 columns) that can only be interacted with the keyboard. Functions can certainly be used…
