Excel 2021 Status bar

New Contributor

I just moved to Office 2021 and cannot find the status bar in Excel.  Where the heck is it?

Make sure that the status bar isn't hidden behind the Windows taskbar.


Try the following if you still don't see it:

Press Alt+F11 to activate the Visual Basic Editor.

Press Ctrl+G to activate the Immediate window.

Type or copy/paste the following line:


Application.DisplayStatusBar = True


With the insertion point in that line, press Enter.

Switch back to Excel.
