  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…

  2. Improve Table Design Tab Appearance and Functionality

    There is No synchronization between the Filter command on the Table Design Tab and the similar command on the Data Tab. So if you apply a Filter from the Data Tab then clear it, the corresponding Filter command on the Table Design is inactive. On the Other hand, if you insert a Slicer from the Table Design Tab ► it inactivates the Filtering commands on the Data Tab. Filter on all tabs should synchronize together as well as with the Slicer.
    Looking at the distribution of commands on the Table design Tab, I would prefer removing the Filter command from…

  5. Improve accuracy in dates

    When one enters two dates in a column, for instance:
    12/01/2019 00:00 ==> General format (43800)
    12/01/2019 00:30 ==> General format (43800.02083)
    And wants to extend the dates for many months, Excel loses accuracy and produces wrong minutes, because the general format of the date has only a few decimal places. In order to get the correct date and time, one must edit and change 43800.02083 to 43800.02083333333333333333333. After that, the minutes come out correctly.

    Windows 10, 64bits, pro - Is it possible to "Pin to Taskbar" command "Backup Now" in Backup options.
    This idea is equivalent to "Permanent backup" with less demand of storing space on the external HDD.

  12. Excel time values are not accurate.

    Write time values every hour by hand on column A and by autofilling on column B. If you now compare the columns, unlike expected, all pairs are not equal. The length of an hour varies between the hand filled values and even more between the autofilled ones. There may occur unexpected errors, if 16:00 is not really 16:00.

    That does not happen with LibreOffice.

  15. Fusionar Células

    Uma outra função que o Excel deveria ter é o fusionar células (não é mesclar). Se tiver algum valor duplicado, mas em alguma coluna ter algum valor diferente, uma função poderia unir as duas e mantendo apenas valores únicos.

    Ex: A1 - japão A2 japão

      B1  em branco   B2  é bonito  

    a função fusionar deveria ficar assim:

    C1 japão C2 é bonito

    poderia ter uma função = fusion (a1:a2)

  16. Synch OneDrive files

    Can you just make the product work as promised? Half the time, my OneDrive files won't synch. They claim someone else is using it but NO ONE is. AS a result, I waste dozens of minutes every week saving and resaving things, trying not to lose files or work, all because this ridiculous product won't even perform its basic functions without hiccup.

  17. 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!

  20. Please make the active cell more visible in a worksheet. It's almost impossible to see.

    I have problems seing which cell that is active in the sheet I'm working on.
    I know that there are a lot of people having the same problem but no one has found a solution. It's extremely hard to see when the cells have borders around them.
    You don't know where you are!
    It's really hard to the eyes and gives me a headeache.
    Please fix this.
