Start Excel, then on the menu bar click Window > Arrange > Tiled > OK
Hope this helps. Let me know if that does not fix the problem

Your suggestion indicated that I did not make the problem clear. The problem applies only to excel spreadsheets that have been previously saved and contain data. When opened in Microsoft, the resulting excel screen is totally gray, no lines, no data. Clicking on the Menu bar opens nothing.
Can you open a New blank sheet?
Ok open a new one, then click Tools > Options > General, and UNcheck the box "Ignore other applications". Click OK
It will NOT allow me to click on "options"
I still think you're not understanding. I DO NOT WANT TO OPEN A NEW EXCEL FILE. I can open any existing file but the resulting screen is blank and totally gray. No data shows at all. And most options on the pull-downs from the menu are not operable.
The only reason I asked you to open a new workbook was to enable you access the Tools > Options menu
