Excel Workbook went blank & Grey

Occasional Visitor

Was working on two spreadsheet on my new Dell Win11 laptop.  I had both in view using Arange Window Vertical.  the next time I tried to open one of the files, all data was gone, or greyed out as well as all menu options.  I used Advance Options & the Disable Hardware Graphics Acceleration was unchecked. 


Can I retrieve my data?

I am not familiar with Windows 11, but if it could be due to Excel, I would check the setting of the page (normal, page break preview, page layout) to see if anything has been changed there.

Attached is a link with the information about it.

Insert, move, or delete page breaks in a worksheet



Hope I was able to help you with this info.
