Hide or display scroll bars in a workbook

By default, a horizontal and vertical scroll bar are displayed in an Excel workbook (workbook: A spreadsheet program file that you create in Excel. A workbook contains worksheets of rows and columns in which you can enter and calculate data.) so that you can scroll through the data in its worksheets (worksheet: The primary document that you use in Excel to store and work with data. Also called a spreadsheet. A worksheet consists of cells that are organized into columns and rows; a worksheet is always stored in a workbook.). However, you can turn scroll bars on or off as needed.

  1. In the Advanced category, under Display options for this workbook, clear or select the Show horizontal scroll bar check box and Show vertical scroll bar check box to hide or display the scroll bars.
