If you are on Windows, press Ctrl+Shift+Esc to activate Task Manager.

In the Processes tab, right-click Excel and select End Task from the context menu.

You'll lose unsaved changes to open workbooks, but when you restart Excel, it will load recovered versions.

It worked! Thanks and greetings from Colombia :)
