I recently upgraded to Windows 10 and the installation overwrote my old personal.xlsb file erasing all the macros I had stored there. Additionally, when I start Excel now the personal.xlsb file does not open. When I go to the XLSTART folder, the file is there. I open it from the XLSTART folder and it opens in this weird format that doesn't even show the rows and columns. Using ALT + F11 opens the macro editor and you can see that the personal.xlsb file is open, but I don't understand the format. I haven't found a good explanation online so any help would be greatly appreciated.

Check the View Tab and unhide to see if you can unhide the Personal Workbook.

I learnt a number of years ago to export my personal workbook (actually all from every workbook) models into a VBA folder which I can retrieve.
