Microsoft Excel – same print settings for several worksheets

I was asked whether there is a quick way to change print settings for several worksheets at once. The answer is to group the worksheets for which you want similar settings. If the worksheets are next to each other in the workbook, from the first sheet to be included, hold down the Shift key and click on the last worksheet tab to be included. If the worksheets are not next to each other, hold down the Ctrl key whilst clicking on the worksheet tabs to be included. Once you have done this you will see the word Group on the Title bar to the right of the workbook name.

Now change the print settings to what you require, using the Page Layout tab and the Page Setup options, or if using Excel 2010 directly from the File – Print options. If you want to print all selected worksheets, from the Print dialog box, select Active sheet(s) then click OK.

When you have finished, you can ungroup the sheets again by right-clicking on a sheet tab name, and selecting Ungroup sheets.

Now each sheet can be used independently again.
