  • Open your existing Excel spreadsheet or create a new one by clicking on the "File" tab and selecting "New."

Step 2: Select the "View" Tab

  • Click on the "View" tab at the top of the Excel window. This tab provides various options for modifying your spreadsheet's display.

Step 3: Select "Gridlines"

  • Within the "View" tab, locate the "Gridlines" option, usually found near the bottom.
  • Click on "Gridlines" to toggle off the gridlines display. Once turned off, your spreadsheet will appear without gridlines.

Step 4: Save Your Spreadsheet

  • After removing gridlines, it's a good practice to save your changes.
  • Click on the "File" tab and select "Save As."

Step 5: Choose a Location to Save Your Spreadsheet

  • Decide on the location where you want to save your file (e.g., your computer's hard drive, network location, or cloud storage like Dropbox or Google Drive).
  • Select the location and click "Save."

Step 6: Thats It!
