Kutools for Excel

Boosts Excel With 300+
Powerful Features

As long as we need to use Excel, we may need to set or reset workbook and worksheet settings now and then. But there are a lot of settings about the workbook and worksheet, and it’s really hard for us to remember or find where those settings locating at. With this View Options tool of Kutools for Excel, you can:

  1. Quickly set following worksheet settings: Gridlines, Page breaks, Row column headers, Display zero values, Clipboard, Selection Pane, Outline symbols and Formulas view.
  2. Quickly set following workbook settings: Sheet tabs, Horizontal scroll bar, Vertical scroll bar, and Objects.
  3. Quickly set following display settings for Excel: Formula bar, Status bar, Inner tabs, Windows in taskbar, Comments, and Research Pane.

Note: we can also change these settings in the Excel Options dialog, but we cannot see the effect immediately. For example, if we unchecked any of these setting with this tool, this tool shows the result or effect in real time. We can quickly apply the settings to all worksheets of the active workbook.

 Click Kutools >> Show & Hide >> View Options. See screenshots:

  • Active the workbook you are going to set these settings.
  • If you want to toggle any of the settings off, please unchecked them.
  • Click “Restore defaults” to restore the original settings in your Excel.
  • Click “Apply to all sheets” will apply all settings to all worksheets of active workbook.

Note: It's done interactively (except Inner tabs), so you can see the effect before you commit to it.
