Well, I know nothing about assigning Macros (and I'm hoping not to anytime soon) so I'm hoping to do this as painless as possible.

I want it that, for example a picture, when I click it, it will automatically Sort & Filter all of Column 'C'.

I am being rather specific, so I do understand if this can't be done. Thanks for anyones' help. :)

It can be done. It's just a matter of how much you are prepared to stretch and learn.

A starting point would be to record a macro: Open your workbook, click the icon to record a macro.

Click through the steps to sort and filter your data. Then click to stop the macro recorder.

You can now insert a shape on the sheet, right-click the shape and assign the macro to the shape.

You can also assign a macro to a picture, instead of a shape, and the macro will run when the picture is clicked.

If you need more details about what the macro should actually do, please start a new question and post the requirements for the actual macro.
