    Welcome to Android Central! What menu bar are you referring to? If you tap the 3-dot menu button at the upper right, do you get the options you're looking for?

    I can't find the Menu Bar (Files, Edit, Formula...) In the Google Sheets app for Android.

    I'm using an S10e.

    Any clue guys?

    Tks!!

    There's no bar on the app. Is there a specific thing you're trying to do for a cell or range of cells that you can't figure out how to do?

    I'm kind of a heavy user.

    I heard that I should open the file in the Chrome, so that is the full Sheets.

    But, since I have the app installed, it automatically opens through the app.

    Anyone knows how to open in Chrome instead of the app, without uninstall it?

    Tks again

    You could try this. Go to settings - apps & notifications - select Sheets - Advanced - Open by default - Open supported links and select 'Ask every time'.

    I tried that, but it still opens directly in the app. I also restart the phone, but it still doesn`t work.

    The best way was if the Sheets App works like the Chrome version, with the Manu Bar (File, Edit, Insert,...), I tried the work around by open the file in Chrome, but I didn`t figure out how.

    Try uninstalling the Sheets app (I don't think it's preinstalled). Then see if you can open a Sheets link within Chrome. It might still force you to install the app, though.

    Yep, you are right. It forces me to install the app.

    I'm trying to use Samsung Dex as my laptop, but this Sheet limitation won't let me.

    I could use Office, but my company is Google based. And, it is hard to understand that I'm finding problem in a Google app....

    I've seen this kind of limitation before in other Android app versions of Google services. Unfortunately, there isn't always a workaround for it.

    Oh man, this thread got me curious and I tried to find a way to open Sheets in a browser. It didn't matter what I tried (clearing defaults, using a direct link in Chrome, starting from Drive, you name it) the file always opens with the app. It must be some kind of limitation in Android.

    Maybe a Dex trick. I don't have that option on my phone.

    I just did it! If you use Opera and open the browser as a laptop style, it will works fine!!

    I think it is a very common doubt, if you guys could get this information available to others, I think it will help.

    I know this is an old post, however there is a alternative way ...

    1. Open Sheets app on android
    2. Select spreadsheet to edit
    3. Click hamburger (top right)
    4. Share and export
    5. Copy link
    6. Open Chrome browser
    7. Paste link
    8. Enjoy ...
