  1. CTRL+M to launch Power Query Editor

    Well, we know that
    the language behind Power Query is called M;
    it takes at least three clicks to launch Power Query Editor;
    the shortcut CTRL+M is currently unassigned...
    Why not using CTRL+M to launch Power Query Editor?

  7. Allow user interface preference default setting (i.e. Gridline viewing and printing)

    Please allow a simple user default interface/preference setting option so that any user can start using Excel in the way each user uses Excel the most frequently. For example, one may like to remove the gridline in view by default because that is the most frequently used format and etc. It is useful to allow users setting up a basic default profile to suit their most used preferences.

  19. Off-line Help

    Excel Help should be configured like the Windows O/S. The basic Help package should loaded when Excel is installed. Help updates should be applied (as available) as the user connects to the Internet. This would allow users to operate in an off-line environment - as many of us still do, and still have access to Excel Help functions.

  20. I am in Mexico. When I go to office365.com/en it takes me to the Spanish Page. I don't understand why.

    Recognize the language of the computer and naturally put them in that language.
