By Allen Wyatt for Excel.Tips.Net

Cindy noted that when naming worksheet tabs, the width of the tabs varies based primarily on the name of the tab. She wonders if there is a way to increase the height of a worksheet tab.

3. Click Open Classic Appearance Properties. Windows displays the Appearance Settings dialog box.
