 Warning Triangle - Ambo
On all Word and Excel documents, high right and next to the Share icon, I get a small yellow triangle with an exclamation mark in the centre. It is there on all tabs, File, Home etc. I does not respond to left or right clicking. I have never spotted it before. It is evidently a warning but of what?

Something to do with not being signed in to Microsoft Office?

That's the meaning of it on my work PC. Not signed into Office 365.

I thought Word and Excel were part of Office. I don't have or want Power Point so perhaps that is the reason for the triangle.

Unless it's causing a problem I'd just ignore it, based on the causes for it above.

Which version of Word, Excel etc are you using?

As others have said if it's the subscription version it seems to indicate that you're not logged in.

Is it possible, with an older purchased version, it's a warning that it's no longer supported?

I was getting repeated warnings that the 2010 version lost support last year. It's good enough for me still and I suspect I was able to suppress the warnings in the 'do not show this message again' sense.

>>Which version of Word, Excel etc are you using?

Unless Windows 11 or Office 2016 (which I have) are meant, I don't know. Where would I find out?

If it's Office 2016 then I believe mainstream support has ended.

After a quick Google

Open Word or Excel
Select File > Account
Sign out
Now Sign in again.

Thanks Vx. I got cold feet and did not sign out - but the triangles have disappeared anyway!
