Resize Excel’s Sheet Tabs
If your eyesight isn't what it used to be, you may want to increase the size of the sheet tabs displayed in your Excel workbooks.
This parameter is determined by a Windows system-wide setting. To change it,
select Start, Settings, Control Panel and double-click Display. In the
Display Properties dialog box, click the Appearance tab, and choose Scrollbar
from the Item list. Adjust the sheet tabs until they're the size you want. Be
aware that this setting affects the scroll bars in all your applications.
Excel has a long history, and it continues to evolve and change. Consequently, the tips provided here do not necessarily apply to all versions of Excel.
In particular, the user interface for Excel 2007 (and later), is vastly different from its predecessors. Therefore, the menu commands listed in older tips, will not correspond to the Excel 2007 (and later) user interface.
