Microsoft Excel View Tab Commands

In Microsoft Excel, the “View” tab contains various commands, settings and options for customizing the view of your spreadsheet. To access the “View” tab and its “Show” group settings, follow these steps:

  1. Open Microsoft Excel.
  2. Open the Excel workbook you want to work with.

  • Formula Bar: Toggle the visibility of the formula bar, where you can view and edit cell formulas.
  • Ruler: Toggle the visibility of the ruler, which can help with aligning objects and text.
