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.

    if the vertical tabs are set up with someone who has Kutools and the file is sent to me (without kutools) will it still have the vertical tabs?

      Hi Brian,
      You will not get the Vertical tabs if Kutools is not installed on your computer.
      The Navigation Pane tool of Kutools does not change the workbook or worksheet, it just change the Excel window view, and add a vertical pane for your ease Excel work.
