Excel 2016 - Row 1 missing

Excel 2016/Win10:

Row 1 on my spreadsheet (titles) does not display. I tried typing A1 in the Name box, but that tactic did not help. I do not remember hiding this row; in fact, I don't even know how to perform that function.

Cans someone please suggest steps to "recover" this row?

Thanks!
Steve

Hi,One way would be to select the top left corner of the excel grid. This gray out all cells from your excel file:
Top_left
Then position your mouse cursor on one of the rows headers (on any numbers), right click on it and select Unhide.
Unhide
This will unhide any hidden rows.

Another way after again selecting the top left corner of the excel grid would be to select Row Height option instead of Unhide.
If you put 15, this is the default height and it will show you back the row 1 again.

But just make sure to again select the top left corner of the excel grid.
