In Excel, you can display the Activate dialog to view all sheet tabs.

Right click at the sheet navigation controls |< < > >| in the Sheet tabs bar, then you can view the sheet tabs in the popped out pane.


If there are too many tabs showing in the pane, you can select More Sheets to open the Activate dialog, then scroll the bar to view the sheets.


In Excel 2013, just right click the right arrow or left arrow at the beginning of Sheet tabs bar, it will open the Activate dialog.

2. Then you can see a Navigation Pane shown at the left of the sheet, click Sheets tab, and in the Workbooks list select the workbook whose sheet tabs you want to view, then in the Worksheets list, you can view all the sheet tabs.


If the sheet tabs are too many to display all in the Worksheets list, you can shorten the workbooks list with moving cursor over the bottom border of Workbooks list, and then drag it up when the cursor becomes.


The Vertical scrollbar will come out automatically when the sheet tabs can’t be shown fully.
