I have a MS Excel document with lots of different sheets. By default each sheets is listet at the very bottom next to each other, like this:

enter image description here

However, as the number of sheets grows, it's getting very confusing and I have to click a lot to the left or to the right, to find a specific sheet. Is there a way to have a better overview, like a list or something, to show me all the sheets in the document in a neat way? Also reordering the sheets would be something nice to have.

I have MS Excel 2016 64-bit.


Right-click on the arrows to the left of the actual tabs. A dialog will open that lists all sheets in a regular list. IIRC you cannot reorder sheets from this dialog though.

That being said: If your Excel workbook gets to big to handle, Excel probably wasn’t the right tool for the job!

I would like to suggest you a simple method to create Hyperlink of Sheet Name for easy navigation.

enter image description here

How it works:

  • Press Ctrl+K to open the Insert Hyperlink dialog box.
  • Click the Place in This Document button.
  • Then link to the sheet, select Sheet name from Cell Reference & press OK.
  • In Type the Cell reference write the Cell address which you want to attach with Sheet's Hyperlink.


  • Repeat Step 1 to 3 for other Sheets.
  • Using this method you can create Sheet's Name list in desire order.
