To adjust the screen size of Excel desktop version, you can try the following steps:

  1. Click on the Restore Down button (the middle button in the top right corner of the Excel window) to make the window smaller.
  2. Move your mouse cursor to the edge or corner of the Excel window until it changes to a double-headed arrow.
  3. Click and drag the edge or corner of the window to resize it.

If you are unable to grab the corner or side of the Excel window to resize it, you can try maximizing and then restoring the window again to see if that helps. You can also try restarting Excel or your computer to see if that resolves the issue.


If you are using Excel Online, you can adjust the size of the Excel window by resizing your web browser window. You can do this by clicking and dragging the edges or corners of the web browser window.

If you are using a web browser that supports full-screen mode, you can also try pressing the F11 key to enter full-screen mode and maximize the size of the Excel Online window.
