Microsoft Excel sheet tabs

In Microsoft Excel, a sheet, sheet tab, or worksheet tab is used to display the worksheet that a user is currently editing. By clicking a worksheet tab (located at the bottom of the window), users may move between the various worksheets.

Every Excel file may have multiple worksheets, but the default number is three. These tabs are labeled "Sheet 1," "Sheet 2," and "Sheet 3." Users may add, move, and rename worksheets. Instructions on how to perform these operations are linked in the Related pages section below.


Use the shortcut key Alt+Shift+F1 to insert a new sheet while in Excel.
