I'm right-clicking on a sheet, clicking delete and nothing happens.  The sheet is not protected.  I'm not sure what's happening.

 

I'm running Excel for Office 365 MSO v1902 for Windows.

 

Thanks.

Hi

If the workbook is shared you won't be able to delete sheets. To turn
off sharing, choose Tools>Share Workbook.
On the Editing tab, remove the check mark from 'Allow changes by more
than one user at the same time'
Click OK

Hope that helps
