In Excel, I seem to have 2 occurances of Toolbars ...
I see 2 sets of icons for Bold/Italic/Underline, 2 sets of icons for Left/Center/Right Justify, etc.
I don't remember seeing this ever.  Is this a normal behavior, and maybe I clicked some option that shows these duplicates?  Or do I have an issue with Excel? (See attached JPG).
(I happen to have Excel for 2011 on a Mac).

Hi,
have you restarted your PC? It's also the first time i'm seeing this.

You can also try this:
 1-   In the upper-right corner of the Excel window, click the oval button.
    Note When this button is clicked, the toolbars are hidden (in any Microsoft Office for Mac application). A second click causes the toolbars to be displayed.

2-    If the toolbars reappear, quit Excel, and then restart Excel to make sure that the appropriate toolbars are displayed.

That's normal (although weird) behavior for Office 2011 for Mac. They're not technically "duplicate" toolbars, although they do have obvious duplicate functionality. The top toolbar hsa permanent commands, and the one one the bottom is inside the "Home" tab, which tries to replicate the ribbon on the PC versions of office. You can customize the ribbon and remove the duplicate toolbar by following the instructions here.
