The "Paste" toolbar tab in Excel Office 365 suddenly ceased functioning!  The "Cut" an "Copy" tabs continue to function normally; however, the "Paste" tab remains "grayed out" (all the time) and does not respond!  I am able to Cut or Copy and Paste by placing the cursor over the destination cell and pressing "Enter;" however, the "Paste" tab remains inactive ("grayed out")!  I just noticed this problem this morning, 09/25/2019.  I ran my anti-virus/malware programs--no threats detected, and have not knowingly updated my Windows/Office 365 software recently.  Can anyone help?

I'd move files from C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Excel to another location to check if helps, and repair office if not.
