Using Print Preview

Before printing all or part or an Excel spreadsheet, it might be a good idea to have a look at what is going to get printed – just in case it’s not what you expect – or really want. Print Preview displays the current worksheet in the preview window. It shows you how the worksheet will look when it is printed.

  • Zoom – Allows you to zoom in on specific parts of the worksheet.
  • Setup – Opens the Page Setup dialog box,
  • Print – Opens the Print dialog box.
