Show only custom cell styles in the ribbon (excel 2010).

Last Modified: 2020-02-17
Dear suppport,

I have added customer cell selection in the ribbon.
When I open new excel files or obtain from others a file - I see the custom cell styles shown in attached "PIC1".
I have my own - see attached .xlsx. I can save them in the XLStart folder or another location you suggest. Or a macro etc.
Please advise how to easily only show my cell styles when I am going to work in someone else file. Do I have to load my own cell styles into their file or can I have them showing up in my PC?
If so, how to approach it.

I would prefer not to affect their cell style list, in their workbook. But if I have to, I was thinking:
1. Macro to delete all cells styles (form PIC1 not being used in a specific file), then I can manually "merge" my cell styles into that affect file, by bringing them from my own file.

Please advise.
