Chapter 1. Getting Around Excel > Starting and Exiting the Excel Program

Starting and Exiting the Excel Program

If you're new to Excel, it won't be long before you're accustomed to performing various spreadsheet tasks simply and quickly. You'll want to start the program with as much speed and simplicity as possible. Choose one of the following methods to start Excel:

  • From the Start menu, choose Programs, and then select Microsoft Excel from the list. This method isn't the fastest, but you don't need to do anything special to use it—the menus are set up for you through your installation of Microsoft Office.

  • Choose New Office Document from the Start menu, and choose the Blank Workbook icon from the General tab. Click OK to open Excel. Again, this isn't the fastest method, but the tools are already set up for you.

  • Open an existing Excel workbook from within Windows Explorer, My Computer, or by using a desktop shortcut to that particular file.
