Hi, 

 

Does anyone know why the Tools and Menu tabs in the Ribbon are not displayed and how I can fix this problem?

 

Many thanks

Caroline

Tools was a menu in old versions of Excel before the ribbon was introduced in 2007. There is no Tools or Menu tab on the ribbon, unless perhaps if you install an add-in that creates them.
