Everyone says that computers are bad for your eyes and that when you reach 30, your eyes start to fail you.
Well, I don’t like to hear these sort of things and my eyes took until much later than 30 to start weakening. However, I do know that working with big spreadsheets in Excel can make anyone’s eyes start to get blurry.
Excel has a feature which allows you to Zoom in to a specific selection you may be working with.
Let’s say you have a spreadsheet with 3 years worth of data, but you are currently working on the 2nd Quarter data.
Highlight the selection in which you are working (2nd Quarter data) and do the following:
Click on the “View” Tab and click on “Zoom to Selection” on the Ribbon.
Click on the “View” menu and choose “Zoom,” then choose “Fit selection.”
See the slideshow below for graphics to help explain.
When you are ready to Zoom back, follow these steps:
Click on the “View” Tab and click on “100%” on the Ribbon.
Click on the “View” menu, click “Zoom” and select “100%” (or whichever percentage view you prefer).
Help your eyes and use the Zoom to selection feature whenever possible.
