Maximize Excel's screen real estate (97/98/2000)


When the file you're working with contains many columns or rows, you'll often want to squeeze as much viewable area out of your monitor's display as possible. In those cases, you should select View | Full Screen from Excel's menu bar. Doing so maximizes your view of the data without all of the cumbersome steps that would be required to manually achieve the same results. All toolbars are hidden, as are the application window, Formula Bar and Status Bar. You'll still have access to worksheet tabs, scroll bars and the menu bar when your worksheet is in this view. To restore the regular windowed-view of your file, click the Close Full Screen button on the floating Full Screen toolbar or choose View | Full Screen again.
