 If one of the sheets in your Excel file appears to be shrunk or zoomed out, you can adjust the zoom level to bring it back to the normal size.

Here is how you can do it:

  1. Select the Sheet: Click on the sheet tab at the bottom of the Excel window to select the sheet you want to adjust.
  2. Adjust Zoom:
    • Use the zoom slider in the bottom right corner of the Excel window. You can find it next to the zoom level percentage. Drag the slider to the right to increase the zoom level.
    • Alternatively, go to the "View" tab in the Excel ribbon, and in the "Zoom" group, adjust the zoom level using the Zoom In or Zoom Out buttons.
    • Zoom to Normal Size:
      • To set the zoom level to the default 100%, you can click on the zoom level percentage in the bottom right corner and type "100%" or use the Zoom to Selection button.
      • In the "View" tab, click on the "100%" button in the Zoom group.

        These steps should help you restore the sheet to its original size. If the issue persists, there might be other factors affecting the sheet size, and further investigation may be needed.
