Excel, a spreadsheet program from Microsoft Corporation which is part of the Office suite of applications, allows you to use gridlines which appear around each cell. Those gridlines let you quickly identify individual cells in your worksheet. You might, however, want to disable gridlines if the design of your worksheet requires it. You can turn off gridlines in Excel in just a few steps.
Launch Excel by clicking on the "Excel" shortcut in your Windows Start Menu.
Open the worksheet for which you want to disable gridlines by clicking on the "Excel" icon and selecting the "Open" command.
Click on the "View" tab and de-select the "Gridlines" check box under the "Show/Hide" category.
Tips & Warnings
- You can reactivate gridlines by checking the "Gridlines" check box again.
