Can’t right click and paste in excel

Occasional Visitor

Have you ever lost your ability to right click & paste into cells in excel?  I have and don’t know how to fix it.

To be able to reuse them, open the affected workbook in Excel and press the "Alt" and "F11" keys on your keyboard at the same time.


A new window will open, press the "Ctrl" or "Ctrl" and "G" keys.

Enter the following command in the opened window below (you can simply copy it):



Application.CommandBars("Cell").Enabled = True



Confirm with Enter and then press the "Alt" and "Q" keys to close the window.


The right mouse button should work now :).


Hope I was able to help you with this info.
