Hello TheNoobSeeker, welcome to the forum.

This is not a bug, just a language option selection.
Check the options to see which language is set as the default:

Open Excel - File - Excel options - Language
Yours is presently displaying in French, so select the preferred one and set it as the Default.

Irene, You just made my day!Person could be from France, Quebec or other 28 countires, where Français is an official language.

TheNoobseeker, you might have a problem with Themes, particularly you screenshot looks like High contrast White theme. Please try to apply other themes like Standard Aero or Basic, and report if it changes anything.

Open Personalization by clicking the Start button , and then clicking Control Panel. In the search box, type personalization, and then click Personalization.

Pour ouvrir Personnalisation, cliquez sur le bouton Démarrer, puis sur Panneau de configuration. Dans la zone de recherche, tapez personnalisation, puis cliquez sur Personnalisation.

As alternative I would go through MS Office 2007 styles: Click on the Office button - Excel Options - Popular tab - Color scheme.

Glad to have been of service.

Seriously though - and back on topic - I did look at TheNoobseekers' profile to see which timeline he/she was on. In my probably somewhat limited view, there appeared to be no obvious French speaking country - no doubt someone will correct me there.

Sorry, TheNoobseeker.
