Where is my Autofill Options button?

New Contributor

Hi! I have called support and they lead me here. 


After I write a formula in a cell, then I drag down to autofill the next couple of cells, when I release, I do not get the "Autofill Options". What I am trying to do is fill without formatting. I instead get this option. 


Please help!IMG_20200710_132019.jpg

Go to File, Options, Advanced, Click on Fill Box and Activate Drag and Drop of Cells, Ok ... and now you have it

enjoy Excel


@NikolinoDE That is already enabled. 

@NikolinoDE I can autofill, that is working. It is when I am done dragging, the menu is different. How do I change the quick menu button to this referenced picture?autofill-options2.png 

@NikolinoDE YOU ARE THE BEST! I figured it out!


File > Options > Advanced > Under Cut, Copy and Paste, enable Show Paste Button Options when content is pasted. 


Thank you!! 


@conwayamyc , I'm not sure how to enable that option, but you can get a similar set of options when you drag the mouse while holding the right mouse button instead of the left mouse button.

Thanks for the feedback ... a like wouldn't hurt either

Have a nice day,

Yea, same problem.
don't worry i gave you a like because it did really help
lol...It was just a joke with the like, you need to give me or anyone here something.
I and most of the others here, give without embarrassing anything.
The best thing to do is to pass on what you have learned without embarrassing anything .
