Chapter 14. Tools for Working More Efficiently > Changing Your Worksheet View

Changing Your Worksheet View

You can customize the way Excel appears when you work on a worksheet. If you typically don't need the task pane when you first start Excel, you can hide it when you start the program. If you need more room to view another row of data, you can hide the status bar. If you are creating a custom spreadsheet, you can change the color of the gridlines or hide them all together. The View tab in the Options dialog box allows you to change the way you view a worksheet or workbook in Excel to suit your needs.

Change View Options

Click the Tools menu, and then click Options.

Click the View tab.

Select or clear any of the check boxes to change the view options you want.
