Navigation Pane – List Sheets, Workbooks, Columns and Names in Excel

It's not easy for you to navigate sheet tabs in Excel if you are dealing a workbook with too many worksheets. You will always spend more time in repetitive scrolling and clicking if you need to switch from one sheet to another. The Navigation Pane in Kutools for Excel will bring in almost 10 times faster than using the tab scrolling buttons. Even if there are dozens of worksheets between those two sheets you want to switch, you only need to click the mouse once to navigate them. Demo

Note: Stop automatically opening Navigation Pane when launching Excel by clicking Kutools > Navigation as shown in below screenshot.
