Hello,

 

On my Macbook i can see which excel sheet tabs is protected on the sheet tab itself, but when i'm working on my windows computer this doesn't show. 

 

Is there anyway to display the "lock" icon on sheet tabs for windows?

@Mathias_Bang_Aller This was a "feature" introduced in the first half year of 2020 and removed a couple of months later from the Windows version after objections of users who found the lock symbol "a disaster".

More about that in the attached link.
