Viewing a Worksheet in Full Screen Mode

Occasionally, you’ll want to see as much of a worksheet as possible.

If you want to format or otherwise manipulate the contents of your worksheet, you can select the cells and either hover over them to display the Mini toolbar or right-click a cell or object to display a shortcut menu.
