How to copy Excel page setup to other worksheets in Excel?

When we have a workbook with multiple worksheets, and we need to print them neatly and prettily, with the same headers, footers, margins, page orientation, and so on. If there is one worksheet, we can setup the page settings for the worksheet easily, but if there are multiple worksheets need to be set up with the same page setup, we may set up page settings for one worksheet and then copy and apply the page setup to other worksheets.

When we set up page settings for a worksheet, we can copy the page settings to other worksheets with the following steps:

1. Activate the worksheet with the page settings you want to copy.

2. Then, hold down the Shift or Ctrl key to select multiple worksheets you want to copy the page settings to. Or you can right-click on one of the sheet tabs, and select the Select All Sheets from the menu, if you want to copy the page settings to all worksheets. See screenshot:
