With just a few setting changes, you can open the screen on your monitor to allow for more space for your Excel Dashboard:
On the View Ribbon, in the Show section, remove the check mark from:
- Formula Bar
Click the File tab, then Options. On the left select Advanced. Scroll to the section “Display options for this workbook”. Remove the check mark from:
- Show horizontal scroll bar
- Show vertical scroll bar
- Show sheet tabs [NOTE: if you need to move to another sheet, perhaps you have several worksheets with different dashboards, use CTRL + PgDn to move to the worksheet to the right and CTRL + PgUp to move to the worksheet to the left.]
Collapse the Ribbons by double clicking on a Ribbon tab.
You now have an uncluttered screen to display your Dashboard!
