    Resizing worksheet window

    I don't know how it happened, but when I opened a workbook all of the worksheets were about 1/4 the size available for a worksheet. I can't use the cursor to drag from a corner or from an edge to increase the size. Nothing else I can see above the worksheet window seems to help, either. I have other workbooks that I can open and whose worksheet windows fill the available space. How can I fix this?

    Hello and welcome to the forum,

    There should be a visible maximize button on the top right of your worksheet (in the middle between the close and minimize buttons). You can click on it and it will resize the worksheet the full size.

    Hope this helps.

    abousetta, I might be using the wrong terminology. I have the maximize button on the Excel window, but not on the 1/4 size view of the worksheet. if I maximize the Excel window, there is no effect on the size of my view of the worksheet.

    Re: Resizing worksheet window

    Good morning, abousetta,

    Is there any way to force the small worksheet window to show the three buttons on the upper right (minimize, maximize and close)? I wish I knew how to send you a picture of what I'm seeing. Mine is horizontally oriented (yours vertically), mine occupies the upper left-hand portion of what I'm calling the workspace (yours is centered) and mine has the file name in the upper left-hand corner and nothing in the upper right-hand corner.

    Doug

    Have you tried, via the ribbon, View > Window > Arrange All > Tile.

    If the min/max/close buttons are not available then the workbook has the Stucture protected.
    Review > Protect Workbook.
    Cheers
