Controlling Display of the Status Bar in Excel

You can control the display of the status bar in Excel in a few different ways. One way is to simply right-click on the status bar and select "Hide" from the menu that appears. This will hide the status bar until you next right-click on it and select "Show."

Another way to control the display of the status bar is through the use of VBA code. For example, the following code will hide the status bar:

Application.DisplayStatusBar = False

If you want to show the status bar again, you would simply change the "False" to "True." You can also control other aspects of the status bar through VBA code, such as changing the text that is displayed or adding your own custom buttons.
