Removing gridlines from an Excel spreadsheet

The normal default behavior in an Excel spreadsheet is to see all the gridlines that separate the rows and columns and define all the individual cells. But there are times where you might want a cleaner appearance, and it would be beneficial to see those lines go away. This is how you do that…

Here’s a typical spreadsheet, complete with gridlines:

excel-gridlines-20170328-1

However, if you go to View > Gridlines, you can unselect the checkbox to remove the gridlines:

excel-gridlines-20170328-2

The net effect is you now have a spreadsheet without all the gridline clutter:

excel-gridlines-20170328-3
