    This feature has since been implemented in Excel for Mac, at least in the Office 365 edition.

    Again, this is another feature that's found in the Windows version, but not in the Mac version. Why? It's been requested since Excel 2011 and it's 2020. Why the long wait?

    To individually delete couple hundred files listed under recent files is not practical.

    This feature has been talked about in every Excel for Mac version going back to Excel 2011. It's 2020. As a developer who works with Excel for Windows and Mac platforms, I'm really surprised that Microsoft did not include or implement this desperately needed feature in Excel for Mac.

    It is almost impossible to edit and manage hundreds of range names and multiple Table names in Excel for Mac without a feature like Name Manager that's found in Excel for Windows. This makes it more difficult to natively implement solutions in Excel on the Mac platform. I'm developing and testing workbook templates for use on both platforms and these include VBA code, as well as data connections to queries in a SQL Server 2017 database. The Name manager vastly simplifies the process of troubleshooting and fixing problems with range and table names - for example, broken references. At the end of the day, I have no choice but to only use Excel for Windows in order to develop solutions, and then open and test the solutions on the Mac platform for compatibility, and then go back to Windows to make adjustments. Going back and forth is not very efficient.

    Also baffling is that in the Mac version, the Excel for Mac Help topic provides instructions on using the Name Manager in the Excel for Mac version.
