  1. excel internal calculator

    I realized that when I perform my monthly bills, I open my web browser, my calculator app in Windows 10, and excel.

    It made me realize there might be a good opportunity for a calculator add-in feature.

    could be a pothead idea, but thought it worth sharing.

    thank you and have a great day.

  4. When using grouping,

    When grouping cells to quickly hide, show certain detail, adding a column infront of it, totally knocks out the grouping, meaning you have to clear it all and start again OR don't add any more columns.

    If the grouping knocked along one column when you added a column in front and pulled it back a column when a column is removed - the experience would be greatly improved.

  8. Make Copying and Pasting Notes From Cell-to-Cell Easier-Take Less Steps

    There doesn't seem to be any quick way to just copy and past a Note from one cell to another. There is not even a special Paste Special command, PASTE NOTE.... One has to open the Paste Special dialog. I'd like a command button to place on my QuickAccess toolbar by which clicking it just pastes the note rather than having to use the Paste Special .... toolbar command that then makes one select the Comments and Notes radio button.

  11. previous result in find and replace

    in the find and replace feature, Word has "next" and "previous" buttons to click through the results. Excel should have a "previous" button.

  14. Setting Autofill Default

    Click and drag a cell defaults to step (1,2,3). The default should be user selectible. For example, default to "copy" so you get 1, 1, 1.

    This was suggested back in 2018, got 110 votes, then was closed by an admin which prevented further votes. I guess MS doesn't want to work on what customers want, just shut them down and do whatever else they are doing instead?

  16. Why does it take so long to insert a line at the top of my file?

    I wanted to rename the file but could not. So I thought to insert a line at the top to explain what the sheet is about. I said "insert row" and it went "working on it" for MINUTES -- still "working on it" after 10 minutes! What is going on?

  18. Add a field for comments to the Transaction sheet

    Please add a Column to the Transaction sheet for comments. When reviewing transactions, the comments would remind you of what the purchased was.

  19. "/" Commands

    I think that adding commands to Excel would be a huge improvement. Even an option just to enable commands would increase productivity a lot. Adding a "/" command prompt and commands for things like sum, repetition, and most other Excel functions would help the user work more efficiently once they become familiar to Excel itself.

  20. Change location of EDIT MESSAGE command

    On the HOME ribbon, the EDIT MESSAGE command is under ACTIONS in the MOVE group. I believe a better home for it would be in the EDIT group as it has nothing to do with "moving" the message.
