Sharepoint 2013 quick edit

I created a bunch of lists on on sharepoint page about a year ago and I went to go update one of the links but the "quick edit" option isnt working to open up the grid view to edit the list.  I've checked settings and it is still enabled.
How else can I edit a list?

Please help us with a screenshot to understand which quick edit is not working. Do you get an exception error ?

Attached is screenshot of button.  When I click it, nothing happens.
It used to change the view to a spreadsheet/grid  view to edit.
I've also tried creating a new view. which did not work.  Same with different version browsers.

from what i can see is the active x on the browser isnt working good . can you try this ?

1.       Close Internet Explorer
2.       Start -> Run… -> “regedit” (without quotation marks)
3.       In the Registry Editor, delete the following Folder (sub-key)…
Path: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\ActiveX Compatibility
Sub-Key: {65BCBEE4-7728-41A0-97BE-14E1CAE36AAE}
4.       Start Internet Explorer and open SharePoint content in the Datasheet View

What version of office you have installed on your pc ? 64bit isnt supported fyi

fleets9876Author Commented:
2010 and yes I believe it is 64 bit but I also tried it on an old server using IE8 and Office 2007 32 bit and get same response.
It seems like it is a permission thing even though I am a Sharepoint Admin with full control.

if its a permission issue you would not find the control "edit in datasheet" to be enabled. lets rule tat out.
if you had office 32 and then upgraded to 64 and then brought back to 32 active x still finds it as 64 and not 32 , so you have to roll out the office completely, delete the left over files manually from the system and do a clean install of 32 bit and try it

I tried it on a server with no office installed and still get same response.

datasheet view requires office installed , which will install the active x controls for office (excel) kinda edit.

Ok I tried it on a 2003 server with office 2007 32 bit with still no luck.
Is there an active x control I can download and reinstall?

Didn't help. Maybe some code got corrupted on the actual page. I'll have to try creating a new site with a list and see if it works.

Jayaraja JayaramanSharepoint Architect ConsultantCommented:
yeah, try creating a new site and see if tat works, one another thing datasheet view wont work on doc libs,pics libs, any libraries .

I found out how to edit it another way - you add /AllItems.aspx to the end of the address and it shows it in grid view.
