Excel 365 row numbers disappears

Copper Contributor



Any idea's what to do when excel row numbers are disappearing (and getting back when I move cursor on the row numbers). I did't have this problem with Excel 2019. It doesn't matter if excel file size is small or large. Also, "ok"/"cancel" buttons inside dialog boxes are not showing/are appearing slowly (eg. when deleting worksheet and the box opens). Excel 365 is up to date, I have Windows 11 (also up to date) and computer is 2 years old Lenovo Thinkpad.

Thanks in advance!

Another possible solution is…You may want to try updating your graphics drivers .
