How to set print area in MS Excel
Now we will see that how we can set print area in MS Excel.
So when we want to print our Excel sheet, first thing which we will do is
press 'Ctrl+P' and see the print preview. As soon as we press the shortcut
key we can see a new window open up on our screen which will give us our
print preview. To exceed print preview we just need to press 'Esc' key from
We can also see print preview of our Excel sheet from quick access toolbar,
we just need to add print preview from the list of quick access toolbar and
an icon of print preview will be generated.
Print preview helps us to get idea that how our print will look like. We
can change the orientation of our print from PAGE LAYOUT tab, from
landscape to portrait or vice versa.
Suppose if we want to print the selected area only, then we can go to page
layout tab and select Page area column and mark 'Set Page Area'. After that
if we will see print preview then only selected part will be shown.
We can also hide the columns and rows which we do not want to print.
To keep the title constant on every pages we can use 'Print titles' option
from page layout tab.
We can also use header and footer tools in our Excel sheet bye going to
Page Layout from status bar, which will give us different options to add in
header and footer like current time, current date, number of pages, total
number of pages till now, etc...
