Magnify Selected Cells In Excel 2007

Excel has a zoom feature so that you can increase the size of the entire document, but sometimes you just want to zoom in on a specific set of cells that you are working on, and Excel 2007 makes this task simple.

Select the cells you want to magnify. Select View on the Ribbon and select Zoom to Selection.


This will zoom in on the specific section you want to analyze in your Excel worksheet.


To return to the normal view click on 100%.


Now you’re back to the view you started with.

    Hey, just looking for an answer on zooming in Excel, was using a tutorial that talks about zooming specific cells and found this site when I couldn’t figure out how to do it. Turns out that feature did not exist in Excell 2003 so I am not sure why they referred to it in the tutorial for that version. Anyway, thought you might like to add something to the “Magnify Selected Cells In Excel 2007” section to say which version it was added in.

    Take care,
