Chapter 20. Managing the Worksheet Display > Magnifying Worksheet Displays

Magnifying Worksheet Displays

Large worksheets or worksheets that present many different display and print areas can be difficult to get around in. If you work with large amounts of information, you need to see as much as possible on-screen. Excel's View, Zoom command can help you in both cases. It magnifies or reduces the amount you see on-screen so that you can see more or less. This command doesn't change the printed result, but it does enable you to reduce a worksheet so that you can see more of it or magnify one part to make formatting easier. Although View, Zoom changes how much of a document appears on-screen, it does not alter the font, column widths, or related features when the document prints.

Note

Magnifying the worksheet by zooming also makes a screen easier to read when it needs to be read from a distance; for example, when it is projected onto a screen with an LCD projection panel, projection system, or large screen monitor. Instead of reformatting the fonts in your worksheet, you can leave everything as it is and magnify the zoom so that everyone can read the content.
