Hello.  I have lost the Insert Comment function when I Right-Click on a cell in my Excel docs.  Can someone help me please?

@albertog , and what is the Excel version?

The latest from Office 365@Sergei Baklan 

@albertog , I see. That is the bug with Excel 2019, but with 365 it shall work. And on ribbon, are all icons available?

@Sergei Baklan Yessir! I had no idea it would be under Review!  I'm so used to either Right-Click or

Shift + F2 

 

Thanks for that!  I really need to take a course to get better at this!

@albertog , you are welcome. By the way, right click also shall work

@Sergei Baklan I tried Right Click, but it doesn't show in the drop down anymore. But at least I now have two other ways to do it.
