Excel includes a view selector in the lower-right of the workbook window, where you can
use buttons to quickly switch between Excel views: Normal, Page Layout, and Page Break
Preview. Normal view is the main view in Excel. It lets you focus on entering, modify-
ing, and managing your data. Page Layout view is the printout related view. It lets you
focus on how your worksheet is going to look when you print it. You can work with page
setup, headers, footers, margins, and shapes in this view to make sure pages look the way
you want. You use Page Break Preview view along with Page Layout view. Page Break
Preview view lets you see how your worksheet data appears on pages. In addition to the
view selector, you can also use the View tab to switch between views. On the View tab,
you can also switch to Full Screen view, which allows you to see the maximum amount of
worksheet data your screen can display without the Ribbon, tabs, or Status bar.
