Hi, when I try to run a macro using its buttons, the buttons do not respond, animate, or function. Often a box will hover above the button containing its text, and when I am able to click on the box the macro runs; however, the buttons themselves are completely non-responsive. I can run macros successfully from the quickaccess toolbar.

Hi, I have exactly the same problem as this. Did you ever find a solution for this.

@Ramsay119I am also having this problem. I find that rebooting fixes it temporarily but then it comes back at unexpected times. I would like to determine what triggers the problem, but I haven't had much experience with this problem yet.

@DeniceAP123  I am having the same problem and I found that double clicking the button works.

@DeniceAP123 the buttons do not work when I have my two screens in extended display but when I change the display to duplicate it does work. It has something to do with the screen resolution from my understanding. Maybe you can try that... 

 

 

 

 

@jogin38, thanks this worked for me, disconnected laptop from dock and voila it works perfect. It also solved another Excel problem for me. When I print a chart that has been moved to a separate tab, it would only print about 2/3. When not docked it prints then entire chart.
Follow up, I am using a laptop with 2 monitors. The setup up is the monitors are at 100% scale and the laptop was at 150% (old eyes). When I change the laptop to match the monitors (100%) and restart everything works.
