We can hide an entire row or column by Hide & Unhide command, and can hide all blank rows and columns with this command too.

Step 1: Select the row header beneath the used working area in the worksheet.

Step 2: Press the shortcut keyboards of Ctrl + Shift + Down Arrow, and then you select all rows beneath the working area.

Step 3: Click the Home >> Format >> Hide & Unhide >> Hide Rows. Then all selected rows beneath working areas are hidden immediately.
