View ribbon tab checkboxes no longer aligned

Copper Contributor


At some point the view tab alignment for the check buttons: Ruler, Headings, Gridlines and Formula Bar changed. I've found no way of reverting back as I much preferred the previous alignment. I don't know if this was due to an Excel update or a Windows update (currently on Windows 11).  I have also considered (but have been unable to find any differences) the possibility it's a resolution issue as I've encountered some before when using a docking station from a laptop to monitors.

How can I change the alignment of these buttons in Windows 11, Excel 365.

That's Excel update - now you have Navigation icon and Automate tab. They were not in previous version as on your screenshot.

Layout is not customizable. You may add/remove tabs and/or items within it, but not change the layout.
