1. In Excel, click the View tab, then click Unhide in the Window group. See screenshot:
2. If there is only one hidden workbook, after clicking the Unhide command, the hidden workbook will show up. If there are multiple hidden workbooks, you will find them all listing in the Unhide dialog box after clicking the Unhide button in step 1. Select the workbook and click the OK button to display it. See screenshot:
Note: If you want to display all hidden workbooks, you must repeat the above operations.

Click Kutools > Show / Hide > Unhide All Hidden Windows, see screenshot:
