How to show sheet tabs vertically in Excel?
As we know, the Sheet Tab is placed at the bottom of Excel window horizontally. If there are too many sheets in a workbook, only several sheet names are visible on the Sheet Tab, see below screen shot. In this condition, some users look for ways to show the Sheet Tab vertically for viewing all sheet names completely. In this article, we will introduce some ways to solve it in Excel.
- Show sheet tabs vertically with right-clicking the sheet tab (right click, temporarily)
- Show sheet tabs vertically with Kutools for Excel (no clicks, permanently)
- Show/list all sheet names with hyperlinks vertically in a new index sheet
Actually, Excel supports a way to show all sheet names vertically, but this way is temporarily.
In Excel 2013, Right click the arrow buttons at the beginning of Sheet Tab, an Activate dialog box will open and display all sheet names vertically. See screen shot below:
In Excel 2007 and 2010, when we right click the arrow buttons at the beginning of Sheet Tab, a right-clicking menu will pop up and display all sheet names vertically. See screenshot above:
The way of right-clicking arrows in Sheet Tab can only show the sheet names vertically temporarily. To permanently display the Sheet Tab vertically, you can try the Navigation Pane utility of Kutools for Excel.
Note: The Navigation Pane is activated by default at the first time after installing Kutools for Excel. If you can’t find out it, you can click the Kutools (or View) > Navigation to activate the Navigation Pane, and click the first button at far left of Navigation Pane to display the vertical Sheet Tab.
Apart from the useful Navigation Pane, Kutools for Excel also provides a workaround to list all sheet names vertically in a new index sheet, and support to just to these sheet tabs by clicking in Excel.
And then all sheet names with hyperlinks or buttons are listed and displayed in a new created sheet, and click these sheet names will jump to them. See screenshot:
