● If you want to use a worksheet’s data in another workbook, you can send a copy of
the worksheet to that other workbook without deleting the original worksheet.
● You can delete a worksheet you no longer need, but you can also hide a worksheet
in the workbook. When you need the data on the worksheet, you can unhide it.
● You can save yourself a lot of bothersome cutting and pasting by inserting and
deleting worksheet cells, columns, and rows.
● Customize your Excel 2010 program window by changing how it displays your
workbooks, zooming in on data, adding frequently used buttons to the Quick
Access Toolbar, and rearranging or customizing the ribbon to meet your needs.
