How to Delete, insert, Organize, Color, group, Move or Copy work Sheets in Microsoft Excel?
Insert Excel Sheet
If you want store more related data and differentiate various information, you do not need to create multiple spreadsheets or Excel files.
You just need to insert many sheets and customize it as needed.

There is another method to create a new sheet with more options as follows

- MS Excel will give you the below option
- I do not want to deviate from this topic, so I am not going to explain all the options here. Click on the worksheet icon or the image
- If you want to choose any other sheet type, like a chart or other downloaded template you can select the same
- Click OK to insert the sheet and Excel will add a new sheet as below
- Most of us want only to insert a plain worksheet so I suggest the fastest way to Press the Shift+F11
How to Delete a sheet?
Right Click on the Sheets Tab and Excel will give a you a menu to select.
When you delete a sheet, Excel will ask you for a confirmation, because you cannot get the data back. It will be lost forever.
When you delete a sheet without any data, Excel will not ask for the confirmation, and it will just delete the sheet.
