How to change the number of sheets for new workbooks

Excel automatically creates three worksheets in each new workbook, but you can force it to create as many worksheets as you need.

For example, if you prefer to start each new workbook with a single worksheet. After all, it's easy enough to add new sheets if and when they are needed.

To change the default number of worksheets:

    1.    Select Tools -> Options....

    2.    In the Options dialog box, click the General tab.

    3.    Change the value for the Sheets in New Workbook Setting and click OK.

Note: Making this change will affect all new workbooks but will have no effect on existing workbooks.
