Displaying Slides Out of Order in PowerPoint
To prevent this from happening, you can “freeze” a row or column that
contains identifying labels. That way, when you scroll through your worksheet,
your frozen row or column always remains visible.
To freeze a row or column in an Excel worksheet, follow these steps:
1. Click the View tab.
2. Click the downward-pointing arrow that appears to the right of the
Freeze Panes icon in the Window group.
3. Click one of the following:
• Freeze Panes: Divides a worksheet into multiple panes
• Freeze Top Row: Always displays the top row no matter how far
down you scroll
• Freeze First Column: Always displays the first column no matter
how far to the right you scroll
To unfreeze a row or column, repeat Steps 1 through 3 but click Unfreeze
