Excel 2013 – Adding A New Worksheet

When you start a new Microsoft Excel workbook, it will come with three new blank worksheets as a default.

If you are creating a large or complicated Workbook then three Worksheets may not be enough to house all your data and calculations, fortunately the process of adding a worksheet is actually much easier than most people think.

1. Right click on any one of your existing Worksheet tabs, where you will see the context menu below appear, from the menu you will need to select the ‘Insert’ option.


2. Once you see the ‘Insert’ menu below, simply highlight the ‘Worksheet’ option and click ‘OK’. A new worksheet will be added to your Workbook, and named Sheet4 (or whatever the next available sheet number is)


If you frequently create Workbooks with more than the standard three Worksheets then a handy shortcut key combination to commit to memory is [Shift]+F11, this will cut out the two steps about and instantly create a new blank Worksheet
