I am looking for a list of Excel 2016 commands. While there is the "what do you want to do?" spot on the menu, it doesn't help find where the command is.
I have seen lists for Excel 2003 to Excel 2007, but 2016 appears to me to be different enough that I don't find some of the commands.

What menu do you mean? Most commands are on the Ribbon. There's a right click menu

The situation that brought up this question is that I wanted to create a custom list.

I found a spreadsheet at Microsoft that was to help people moving to Excel 2007 from 2003.
However, it didn't list Custom List.  And, if I go to Tell me what you want to do, or Help, they don't cover it.
I was able to find that Custom List under Data, Sort, Order.  That's why I am looking for a complete list of commands.


Search for Custom List in 2007 Command List
Create Custom List from Tell me...
Help for Create Custom List
Custom List from Sort Order.

Thanks, that would help if there was a way to capture the text. I tried it with Snagit screen capture, but they say that Windows 7 has made it very hard to do things like that.

I've posted a screen capture but I don't think you can extract the text.

For what it's worth, I was able to collect all the commands by using a screen capture into PDF files and then OCR'ing the PDF files and editing them.  Here is the list.  I have contacted Microsoft in trying to get a list of the menu commands to use these.

Did you get this list from Excel Options as a source?

There are two ways to get there, but yes:
1) Right click on the Quick Access Toolbar, Choose More Commands
2) File, Options, Quick Access Toolbar
and
Under "Choose commands from:"
Select "All"

Yes that's a short cut to the Options Form that I used. What software did you use to extract the list from the screen shot?

I used Snagit to select part of the screen to save the commands to a PDF file.
Avoid the icons for the commands. If they are included in the screen capture, the OCR puts in garbage characters.
Use Adobe Acrobat Pro or some other program to do the OCR.
In Acrobat, you would choose View, Tools, Recognize Text, In This File.
Then, choose Edit, Select All.
Edit, Copy.
Open a text editor or word processor and then paste.
