I tried it on my computer (I’m in Seattle today). I right-clicked where the menues should be. This gave me a long-ish drop-down menu. At the bottom is said ‘Customize’. Clicked that. There came up a window with three tabs: Toolbars, Commands, Options. The last item in Toolbars is ‘Worksheet Menu Bar’.
I unchecked that, and my menus went away. When I closed the dialog box, they came back.
So I called her at home and had her connect to her work computer again. Apparently, she has a different version of Excel than I do. When she right clicks, ‘nothing happens’. In the upper-left corner of my Excel window there is a little green Excel ‘X’ icon and ‘Microsoft Excel - Book1’. On hers, there is a ‘Windows four-[something]’ icon. When she clicks on that, it gives her the option to ‘Save as’ whatever she’s working on. But she can’t find the Sort menu or any of the other things she’s used to.
What I don’t understand is this: If she is connecting to her office computer via Remote Desktop Connection, her RDC window should be showing her what’s on the desktop of her office computer. This is how it is for me, when I’m at home on my Mac – I see my office PC desktop in the RDC window. So why would the version of Excel she is (alledgedly) using at home via RDC not the version that she says she’s been using on her computer?
It’s Friday, and I want to go home. But I have to finish this file I’m working on first. I’ll just let her ask the IT guy when he comes in on Thursday. If you’d still like to post responses, please do. I might be able to use them for future reference.
