Hi Experts, what Im trying to do please is add formula functions ie, x, /, =, etc to the main menu so I can just click on them instead of having to click on the keyboard.
In previous excel version I could find them and drag them to the main menu, how is it done in this version please?

If you rightclick a blank spot on the Quick Access Toolbar (or the ribbon), you can choose to Customize it. You will then see a dialog in which you need to choose "All Commands" in the dropdown for the "Choose Commands From" field.

Having done that, look for "Plus sign", "Minus sign", "Equal sign", "Multiplication sign" and "Division sign". You can then click the Add button to put them on the QAT or ribbon. These signs will be enclosed in double quotes.
