[MacOS] Borders toolbox missing in Excel 2011


I've just installed Excel 2011 on Mac OS, but what is strange is that there are no shortcuts for the "borders" tools and each time, I have to go through "right click > format cell borders ....etc".
  • Have to have this toolbox back as for the previous versions.


  • This happens when you're using a 13" laptop. The screen is simply too small to display all the toolbox in minimized mode.
  • Maximize the window width and the borders toolbox will be available.

Thanks to Crycian for this tip.
