How to show hidden first column or row in Excel?

Author: Sun Last Modified: 2020-09-22

In general, you can select the cells which are on the hidden column or row’s either sides, and then click Home > Format > Hide & Unhide to display the hidden column or row as below screenshot shown. However, if the first column or row whose two sides’ cells you cannot select is hidden, how can you display such column or row in Excel?

To show hidden first column or row, you need to use Go to function to locate in A1, and then display the row or column.

Pensez aussi à désactiver la fonction 'Figer les volets" ; si elle est activée sur la cellule B2, la ligne 1 et la colonne A sont impossible à ré afficher sans cela.
