A Quick Way to Access All the Tabs in an Excel Workbook

BY STANLEY ZAROWIN

Many of my Excel workbooks contain 24 or more worksheets, making it hard to find the one I want quickly because not all the tabs fit on the bottom of the screen. Do you have any suggestions for speeding my searches?

 I assume listing them in alphabetical or numerical order, or some other kind of predetermined order, doesn’t work for you. In that case, I would suggest a very simple keystroke shortcut that creates a vertical list of all the worksheets in a file (see screenshot at right). Then, clicking on an item in the list opens that worksheet.

To generate the list, place your cursor at the left side of the bottom of the worksheet screen, in the area of the black arrows, and right-click.
