Microsoft Excel only gets better through several new features that it received to expand its usability for the users. The platform now welcomes the upgrades that now arrive for the web use of the people who love making spreadsheets online.

What Are Those Upgrades That You Should Check Out in Microsoft Excel?

According to a report by Tech Radar, the tech giant is committed to paving a smoother way for the users to use the new features for a much richer experience when using Excel.

The recent updates have seen a huge growth in the software's navigation, as well as its support in version history and multiple range sections.

If you want to open Microsoft Excel with many worksheets, users can now shift to the web through the feature. In addition, the company also decided to let the users choose the corresponding ranges, and they could color it or do a "copy-paste" task.

Meanwhile, the additional support of the program also covered the zooming options, where users are free to zoom in and out of a sheet. Now, you can magnify the item from 25 to 200 percent depending on your preference.

It is also noticeable that the software has developed into a much more powerful tool through acquiring the new keyboard shortcuts. However, these keyboard shortcuts can be enabled in Excel itself, and not through a web browser that a user wants to open.

Microsoft Excel also received support in its version history, where users can now go back to their previous spreadsheets if they want to review them. The feature is perfectly made for those who want to make a spreadsheet project with others.

The last feature will be the regional settings added to the program. For users' web usability, the said feature is unlocked for those who want to set their currency depending on their location. They could also change their time zone and number anytime they like.
