Rename sheet tab
Here is an Excel file with three sheets to it.
Whenever you add a new sheet to Excel, it is named “Sheet + the next serial number” by default.
So we have Sheet1, Sheet2, and Sheet3 in our workbook here. Let’s begin renaming them.
Here we go🚀
- Right-click on the sheet tab for the sheet that you want to rename.
We are renaming Sheet 1 right now.
You’d see a context menu of options launches.
- From this menu, select the option Rename.
- Now type in the sheet tab to rename the sheet.
We are setting the name of the sheet to Spreadsheeto. You can set it to anything✍
- Once you’re done typing, hit enter or click anywhere away from the sheet tab.
There you go! The sheet is now renamed as Spreadsheeto. That was easy💪
You cannot name multiple sheets in Excel by the same name. That also means that you cannot rename multiple sheets (or all the sheets) simultaneously.
For example, if I try to rename Sheet2 as Spreadsheeto too, Excel will raise the following prompt🚩
