Is this just when over the cells ?

Does it work on the title bar - windows options
Or on the Excel menus ?

Unless the right-click button is frozen, I'm sure you can use the mouse
right-click in Excel

Just hit the right-click button.

Now...........................the real issue

What are you right-clicking on and what doesn't happen for you?

Does the right-click not work at all or just under certain circumstances?

Maybe the right-click cell menu doesn't pop-up?

If you right-click on a Toolbar what happens?

More detail please.

You can reset the right-click menu.

Hit ALT + F11 to go to the VBEditor.

Then View>Immediate Window.

Copy/paste this line into the window and hit <enter>

Application.CommandBars("Cell").Enabled = True

OR copy/paste this sub to a module and run it.

Sub reset()
Application.CommandBars("Cell").Enabled = True
End Sub

The Insert and Format not being available could be because the worksheet or
workbook is protected.....I would vote for worksheet.

Tools>Protection>UnProtect Worksheet.

greyed out too. main tool like insert and format also greyed out on a new
spreadsheet.
