Excel Quick Tip #8 - Copying a Worksheet

You can copy an entire worksheet incredibly quickly in Excel using the technique described below:

  1. Select the worksheet you want to copy.
Selecting a sheet

Here we want to copy Sheet1.

  1. Hold down the CTRL key and then click and drag on the sheet tab.
Copying a sheet

The + symbol under the mouse cursor indicates that we're copying a sheet rather than moving it. The small black arrow shows where the copy will go when we release the mouse button.

  1. Release the mouse button and then release the CTRL key.
Copied sheet

The end result is two copies of the same sheet. It's a pity that we now have two copies of Waterworld and Wild Wild West!


You can watch a video of this technique in action at Wise Owl's YouTube channel.
