Tell ME

I have Office 2016 for Mac installed on my home machine. The "Tell Me" command or ? mark does not appear in any of the Office ribbons. I am up todate on OS and Office upgrades. How do I get Tell Me to appear?

Office for Mac has a variation of Tell Me. Let's say you have a data range and you want to make it into an Excel Table. Click on the Help menu and in the search field type the word Table. A list of matching commands will display. As you mouse over the commands, Excel points you to the command in the menus. You can click on a command to activate it, or press Return or Enter to activate the command being pointed to, similar to Tell Me. Here's a screen shot.
