Excel offers a great deal of flexibility regarding what is displayed onscreen (status bar, formula bar, toolbars, and so on). These commands are located in the View tab.
In fact, Excel makes it possible to develop an application that doesn't even look like a spreadsheet. For example, by choosing View Workbook Views Full Screen, you can get rid of everything except the title bar, thereby maximizing the amount of information visible. To exit full-screen mode, right-click any cell and choose Close Full Screen from the shortcut menu.
NEW Excel 2007 places a zoom control in the right side of the status bar, making it easier than ever to zoom in or out. In addition, you can right-click the status bar and specify the type of information you'd like to see.
