There are several ways to view an Excel spreadsheet on your computer. The most common method is to open the spreadsheet with the Microsoft Excel program.
Before you can view an Excel spreadsheet, it must first be saved on your computer. Once the file has been saved and is accessible in the same location, you can open the file in Excel.
To open a spreadsheet in Excel, go to the Start menu, select All Programs, then select Microsoft Office. From here, select Excel. You may be prompted to choose whether to open a new workbook or open an existing workbook. Choose “Open” and then navigate to the location where you saved the spreadsheet. Select the file, and click “OK” to open the workbook in Excel.
Another method of viewing an Excel spreadsheet is to use the Microsoft Office Online website. If you have an active Office 365 account, you can open the spreadsheet in Excel Online (formerly known as Office Web Apps). To do this, visit the Microsoft Office Online website, select “Excel” and sign in with your username and password. Then, select “Open File” and navigate to the location where the spreadsheet is stored. Select the file and click “Open”.
If you don’t have an Office 365 account, you can still view the spreadsheet in Excel Online by selecting “Upload” instead of “Open File”. Then, select the file from your computer and it will open in Excel Online.
Lastly, you can also view an Excel spreadsheet by downloading the free Excel Viewer program from Microsoft. This program allows you to open and view any Excel file without needing to install the full version of Microsoft Office. To use Excel Viewer, navigate to the Microsoft Download Center, select “Excel Viewer” and click the “Download” button. Once the download is complete, double-click the file to launch the program. From there, open the Excel spreadsheet as you would in Microsoft Excel.
No matter which method you choose, you should now be able to view your Excel spreadsheet on your computer.
