Hi, Shailesh, and welcome to Maxima.
Could you please tell us exactly what front end and version of Maxima you
are using? For the Maxima version, you can find that with build_info(). For
the front end, I guess that will be in the Help menu.
The front end to Maxima that I use (xmaxima) has no "cell" concept....
