Settings in Excel 2016
If you work with the same workbooks every day it will be helpful to open specific workbook files automatically whenever you start Excel. Any workbooks placed in the XLStart folder open automatically.
Like a common text, any comments can be formatted: Excel represents many allows you to customize most aspects of its appearance, including color, border, and margins.
Normally, cell comments are rectangular, but you can give a cell comment any shape you want:
If you are creating chart or diagram in Excel with shapes, you might need to update the shape text automatically depending on the value in a particular cell.
When a comment has been inserted in a cell, the little red triangle is being displayed to indicate a comment in a cell. This tip is how to hide/display this indicator.
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.
Having your 25 most recently used workbooks on the File menu is handy, but you may find it's not enough. You can increase the number shown up to 50, and you can pin (fasten) particular workbooks to the menu so that they remain there even if you haven't used them recently.
Suppose you'd like to add a couple more commands to the Quick Access toolbar. Also, say you're a big fan of AutoSum. You can add the AutoSum button to the Quick Access toolbar, so you can quickly create and use AutoSum entries.
Creating custom menus in Excel is a funny feature you can use to create groups of the options that you use most often, and then plug them into the menu you name and use yourself.
Excel includes a variety of built-in formats that cover general, numeric, currency, percentage, exponential, date, time, and custom numeric formats. You can also design your own custom formats based on one of the built-in formats.
