Deleting Menu Items

Excel is remarkable in both its flexibility and capabilities for customization. This includes allowing you to completely change the menus within Excel, if you so desire. For instance, you may want to delete a menu item so it cannot be selected by other people using your computer. To delete an item from a menu, follow these steps:

  1. Select Customize from the Tools menu. You will see the Customize dialog box. (See Figure 1.)
  2. Figure 1. The Commands tab of the Customize dialog box.

  3. Click on the menu from which you want to delete a menu item. (Not in the Customize dialog box, but actually within Excel while the Customize dialog box is open.) This displays the menu.
  4. Drag the item you want deleted off of the menu.
  5. Repeat steps 2 and 3 to delete additional menu items.
  6. Click on Close in the Customize dialog box when done.

Another way to delete the menu-bar item is to hold the ALT key down while dragging the button of the bar. (Excel 2003).
