The many features of the MS Excel View Tab allow users to work with spreadsheets efficiently and make the most of them.

The users can create many temporary views in the Excel sheet, so they do not have to come back repeatedly looking for specific data. Following are the actions users can perform on the Sheet View panel: 

Sheet View: Users can switch the sheets through a drop-down box that contains all the present Sheet Views of the specified workbook. 

Keep: It implies that the user wants to save the current view of the sheet as a new sheet. 

Exit: Closes the current Sheet View that the user has temporarily created.   

New option: Allows temporarily creating another (new) Sheet View. 

Options: Users can choose the Sheet Views they want to work on and, at the same time, rename, duplicate and delete the Sheet Views in Excel. 

Views 

The Views pane in MS Excel View Tab offers the ability to quickly switch between the normal page or master page of the workbook. Usually, the Normal View is set as Default, but users can view the workbook comfortably and efficiently using the Immersive Reader option. They can also listen to the text using the read-aloud option and adjust text appearance by modifying spacing, colour and more.
