Excel - Disabling Menu Floaties inside cell.

Sach44 used Ask the Experts™
I disabled the right click context menu floaties using " Application.ShowMenuFloaties = True ".

However, I would like to know if the IN CELL menu is possible to disable :

I am aware I can use a hidden textbox or combobox to disable the possibility of acccessing this menu as well. Is there a simple fix for this?
