    Alternative to Right Clicking in Status Bar (2007)

    Hello,

    We have disabled the mouse right click for security reasons on our public computers. Is there another method, besides right clicking in the status bar, to open the status bar menu.

    Thanks,
    Steve

    This doesn't work in my earlier version of Excel, but according to Customize the status bar, you should be able to press F6 until the status bar is highlighted, then press the application key next to the right Ctrl key (see screenshot below) to activate the popup menu.

    Just to confirm...I tested it and it works well!!

    Select a cell in excel to activate the app, then press F6 once and the button next to CTRL that activates the context menu.
