Quick start: Print a worksheet in Excel Starter

Before you print a worksheet, it's a good idea to preview it to make sure that it looks the way you want. When you preview a worksheet in Excel Starter, it opens in the Microsoft Office Backstage view. In this view, you can change the page setup and layout before you print.
