Hide Excel's Sheet Tabs in Order to Expand Worksheet Display


Q I want my screen to display as much as possible of an Excel worksheet. I’ve gotten rid of my Ruler, Message Bar and Formula Bar. Now if I can only hide the tabs on the bottom of the page. Any ideas?


A Excel displays the tabs by default, but you can hide them in Excel 2003 by going to Tools, Options and then opening the View tab and unchecking Sheet tabs (see screenshot below).



In Excel 2007, click on the Office button and then go to the bottom of the screen and click on Excel Options (see screenshot below).



Then cursor down the right-hand column to Advanced, and go down to Display options for this workbook, removing the check next to Show sheet tabs (see screenshot below) and click on OK.
