How to select multiple or all sheet tabs in Excel?

Author: Kelly Last Modified: 2020-05-09

In general, we can easily select one sheet tab by clicking it on the Sheet Tab bar in Excel. However, sometimes you may need to select multiple or all sheet tabs at the same time, how could you get it done? There are two easy solutions for you!

Select multiple or all sheet tabs with hotkeys

You can select multiple or all sheet tables with the Ctrl key or the Shift key in Excel.

Holding the Ctrl key, you can select multiple nonadjacent sheet tabs by clicking them one by one.

Holding the Shift key, you can select multiple adjacent sheet tabs by clicking the first sheet tab and the last one.
