Hi all,

Is there a way to disable and enalbe the right click in Excel (maybe registry setting?).
My application uses an Excel sheet and for some reasons, some times I need to disable or enable the right click on the sheet. Is this possible?

Thanks a lot.

Hi Catouch,

Thanks to Chip Pearson

Sub test2()

''To disable the right click menu on the sheet TAB, use

Application.CommandBars("Ply").Enabled = True

''To disable the standard cell right-click menu for a cell, use

Application.CommandBars("Cell").Enabled = True

End Sub

don't forget to set them to true if you want to use the right-click again
