The squares have shrunk to an illegible size. I cannot right click on the side to format the row height. I cannot click on the top left corner to select the whole page. No words or letters are visible on a page that contained all of my tax info. I have never seen a spreadsheet look like this in decades of using Excel. The size selected on the graph below it says 100%, so the size selection isn't the problem.

 

When I tried to upload a copy of it, I found my File Explorer is also messed up. See attachments.

 

I hope someone out there can help!

 

Thanks, Gayla

Does the problem persist after restarting Windows?
