I am using MS Excel 2016 and the spell check will not allow me to select 'Add to Dictionary', 'Ignore Once', 'Ignore All', etc.

The buttons are live, yet no response when I click them. The only button that seems to function is the cancel button. Any help on this is appreciated. Thank you.

Oh I see your screenshot now. PC version. Hmm.

I would honestly just reinstall (not repair) Office to deal with that. Sounds like there's some corrupted application files.

- uninstall Office
- reboot
- reinstall Office
- reboot

If you have Office 365, a fast internet connection and a decent PC, that whole process takes less than 20 minutes and is quicker than troubleshooting obscure issues.

I had to reinstall Office 365 on my laptop recently and it immediately fixed all my issues.

It is PC version.

I believe I found the solution under the Language Ribbon within the Options menu.
