How to freeze top and bottom row at once in Excel?
In Excel, we can easily freeze top row of a worksheet. Sometimes, there is a large worksheet has long list data, and we want to freeze both the top row and bottom row, so that we can view the top headers row and last row at the same. There is no direct way for us to solve this problem, fortunately, we can use some workaround ways to deal with this task.
Normally, most of us may consider viewing the data in two different windows side by side. Please do as follows:
1. Open your workbook and activate the desired worksheet.
2. Then click View > New Window to open this worksheet in a new window, see screenshot:
