Hello,

 

I am wondering how to fix this issue of all of Excel's windows being blank. Upon startup it's blank, opening a file from File Explorer it's blank. Opening it up, it likes like the picture. Can someone help?

Hi@kyle_student10 

 

Close Excel please. 

1. Open Start > Run

2. In the Open box, type Excel.exe /resetnavpane, and then choose OK.

Re-open Excel.

 

Thank you

Dav,
