Saving Valuable Toolbar and Screen Space in Excel

If you're like most people, you probably have a lot of toolbar and screen real estate taken up by the Microsoft Excel application. Here are some tips on how to save valuable toolbar and screen space:

  1. First, consider which toolbars you actually use on a regular basis. If there are any that you never or rarely use, you can hide them by right-clicking on a toolbar and selecting "Hide" from the drop-down menu. This will free up some valuable screen space.
  2. Second, take a look at the size of your toolbars. If they're taking up too much space, you can reduce their size by right-clicking on a toolbar and selecting "Size" from the drop-down menu. Then, select "Smaller" or "Larger" as desired.
  3. Third, think about which commands you use most often. You can add these commands to a custom toolbar that's easily accessible by right-clicking on a toolbar and selecting "Customize" from the drop-down menu. Then, in the "Commands" tab, add the desired commands to your custom toolbar.
  4. Fourth, if you have multiple workbooks open at the same time, you can save valuable screen space by minimizing them. To do this, simply click on the "-" button in the upper right-hand corner of each workbook.
  5. Finally, if you want to get rid of the toolbar altogether, you can do so by going to View > Toolbars and unchecking the ones you don't want.
