    Unwanted pane

    Every time I open one of my saved .xlsx workbooks I get a left hand pane.

    I don't want or need it.

    How can I stop that pane from opening every time?

    That's not the kind pane I'm talking about.

    The one I'm talking says, "no thanks I've got all files I need".

    Start Excel in safe mode then have a look at what Add-Ins are defined...

    no one is psychic - it helps if you mention "what kind of pane" it is in your [first] post!

    Re: Unwanted pane

    Use User-Initiated Safe mode

    1.Click Start, point to All Programs, and then point to Microsoft Office.
    2.Press and hold the CTRL key, and then click the name of the Microsoft Office program that you want to run

    You may be prompted if you want to start in Safe Mode, click Yes.

    If that starts ok an add-in might be at fault, go to File, Excel Options, Add-ins, in the Manage box select Add-ins, click on Go and deselect all the add-ins and restart Excel normally. If Excel start normally without the panel, go back to the Add-ins and select 1 add-in and restart Excel. Repeat until the problem comes back.

    If that doesn't solve the problem, go to the Control Panel, Programs and Features. Select Microsoft Office and click on CHANGE then select REPAIR then CONTINUE.

    Re: Unwanted pane

    I think that pane comes about when Excel did not close down properly in the past, and so it is giving you the chance to try to recover any files that may have been affected. I haven't seen it for a long time, so I can't remember all the options associated with it.

    I think you are right about not being saved correctly.

    I saved it and have not been able to duplicate it since.

    I'm not going to mess with the ad-ins because I simply don't know what I'm doing.

    Thank you,
