Finding Hidden Content Using the Document Inspector
Finding Hidden Content Using the Document Inspector
The Document Inspector can find a lot of hidden content, but it is not perfect.
Still, finding 95% of the types of hidden content can protect you a lot of the
time.
Caution
The Document Inspector is not foolproof. Do you frequently hide set-
tings by changing the font color to white or by using the ;;; custom num-
ber format? This won t be found by the Document Inspector. The Docu-

To run the Document Inspector, select File, Info, Check for Issues, Inspect
Document, and click OK. The results of the Document Inspector will show
that the document has personal information stored in the file properties (au-
thor s name) and perhaps a hidden worksheet.

let, you can put Excel in touch mode. A tiny bit of space appears
around each icon, which hopefully gives you more of a chance to
touch the correct icon.
Less chrome (2013)
Less chrome (2013) Microsoft really believes a lot of people will
be using Excel on touch devices once Windows 8 begins to catch on.
They tried to make the touch zones bigger by eliminating any decora-
tions in the interface. Microsoft called these decorations the
chrome in the interface. In addition to losing the chrome, you also
lose some tiny icons that would be hard to use in touch mode. For ex-
ample, the tiny icons in the edge of the scrollbars used to split a win-
