  1. Dark Mode (Excel Cells)

    Please update dark mode in Excel to also include the cells changing colour according to the theme.

    Dark mode in excel with the cells on the spreadsheet remaining white is pointless being that dark mode is there to reduce eye strain.

  2. Map of Switzerland - Add municipalities level

    There are only the states level disponible in the map graph for Switzerland. It would be realy great to have also the municipalities level.

    Data are available on geonames.org on the third-order administrative division.

  3. Remove account information in top

    Please remove account information in the top of office programs.


    1. I don't care which user is logged in.

    2. It is useless information. P

    3. People around me is not supposed to know who I am.


    4. So please hide it under "File" or whatever.


    I want however to see the file name! I have 4 excel docs open but have no clue which ones because there is no room for the document name, because of this account information in the top.

    Please remove it.

  4. Same Ribbon Design as Office 365

    as an Office Insider, i would like to recommend a same ribbon graphics design (just like the white ribbon with colored title bar that corresponds to what office apps you use, found in Office 365) on MS Office 2016/2019 too. I think it would be a great idea to have unified and uniform design between Office apps :))

    wish i had the chance that this post/idea will be noticed and make some actions :))

  5. Scanning into Excel

    In Apache, you are able to scan a document directly from your scanner into word. From Word, you can cut and paste the document or picture into Excel.

  6. Insert Shape: Add Dimension Shapes (Linear, Aligned, Radial, etc) with grips

    As an engineer, I like to put graphics in my calculations with dimensions, but I have to draw the dimensions from individual lines, arrows, text boxes, etc. I would like to insert predefined shapes for dimensions of different styles that can be edited/modified with grips. Similar to dimension styles in autocad. Ideally the text box for the dimension text would be included, but I'd still be thrilled to have a single shape object for the dimension. I could still always insert my own text boxes for more customized appearance. Orthogonal dimensions would especially be helpful if they could also be…

  11. Enable importing photos to worksheets by Drag and Drop (as Mac version)

    Add drag and drop ability to Excel for importing photos to worksheets as per the MacOS version.

    This is the one thing holding me back from switching to the Windows version of Excel.

  12. Theme availability

    I would like to request to kindly provide dark theme that will be applied to whole worksheet not only on ribbon. it is most preferable if Dark Gray or some other effective color along with black theme is provided for working night to reduce eye strain.
    it would also request to kindly give option to change outlook body color (Switch background) like available in black theme i.e. not available in Dark Gray.

  15. Save As Picture broken

    I think there used to be an option to "Save As Picture" when right clicking on a graphic. This appears to have been deleted. It still works in Word or Powerpoint, but right now I can't find anyway to save a graphic in a file as a picture without having to copy it to another application.

  19. Revise the Grand Totals icons

    When you have a PivotTable cell selected, go to the Design tab and then Grand Totals. At first, the icons all look the same, but actually, the data is coloured in blue to indicate where the grand total will be placed, and the remaining data remains grey. The blue and the grey are too similar to each other to be able to easily tell them apart when the data is only 1 pixel thick. This issue only gets worse over time as monitors gain more resolution but remain the same size (i.e. pixels get smaller and their colour becomes even…

  20. It would be great if I could add or link a photo to each data row.

    What I would like to be able to do is add or link a photo to a (each) data row. For example, suppose I have a spread sheet of all my valuables. Each row dedicated to a particular item with the columns containing attributes such as name of the item, value, purchase date, etc. I would like to include an attribute column titled “photo” to document an image of the item. Since any discernable photo will be much too large to fit into the likely size of the cell, when selected, the cell must access (wherever stored) the appropriate image…
