Sheets can be grouped (connected) to facilitate creating or formatting two or more identical sheets. For example, you can create one sheet and copy it to two other sheets, or you can group three blank sheets and enter and format the content once-no subsequent copying required.
By default, Excel shows document tooltips (or screentips) when you hover on a button, but this option can be turned off.
