is that your machine lack of resources?

one of the methods is simply close your VBA editor and then reopen it again.

Machine is a Surface Pro 3, so I think enough resources. I've tried the close and open.

Have you checked in the View menu in the VB Edito?

I'm not even getting a view menu in the vb editor, just the screen in my attachment.

Thx

Have you tried running a repair on Excel?

Do you have the same problem in MS Word?

I'm on a Surface Pro 3, and yes I did try to run a repair on office 2016. Both the quick one and the extended one.

Good question on Word. I have the same issue there.

thanks

It must be an issue with your installation. I've seen mention somewhere about registry entries. I'll see if I can find that.

Could it be that the VBE Windows and ToolBars have been forced off the screen?

Here's some links that I have found

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/829059

This is part of answer I found

Close All Office programs
Open a command prompt and type regedit
Navigate to HKEY_CURRENTUSER\Software\Microsoft\VBA\6.0\Common
Right click on Common and Export to save the *.reg file somewhere safe. This is your back up. Double clicking this file will restore your current settings.
Right click on Common and Delete it. Doing this will remove all of its subkeys that hold your personal settings.
The "Common" key will be recreated the next time you close the VBA Editor along with any changes to the settings you may make.
