Stop formatting all numbers as dates, as users have been requesting since the 1990s
Automatic date formatting is not useful except for data entry, and it makes use of Excel for anything but the simplest processes a royal pain. Users have been requesting a way to switch this off for DECADES, but all they get in response is some unpaid "MVP" telling them how to use apostrophes.
I just want an option in the default settings to disable all auto-formatting in Excel. I'm perfectly capable of typing what I want to type, but Excel insists on guessing how I wanted it formatted and then automatically changing it without asking or giving an option to switch it back. At least Word has an option to "Undo Autoformatting." Excel doesn't even have that! But no, they insist on adding features nobody wants or cares about instead of this one fix that we've all wanted for decades.
