Treasure on the Status Bar

With all that current versions of Excel have to offer, it is easy to overlook the Treasure Chest of information available right at your footstep on the Status Bar.  If you are an Excel 2007 or Excel 2010 user, you probably are aware of real-time display of common data such as Average, Count, and Sum of any cells you have selected.

What you may not be aware of, however, is that an entire trove of Excel Goodies is just a click away.  Simply Right-Click the Status Bar and Bam!  You will see a List of 22 pieces of Information that can be instantly added or controlled in this area.

For instance, you can easily Add or Delete the Number Count, Maximum or Minimum, Average, and so forth.  But that’s not All!  You can also Control such wondrous goodies as Macro Recording, Fixed Decimal, Permissions, and much more!

I don’t know about you, but I like to have things At My Fingertips for easy access and control.  The Status Bar is a very handy place to add some more Control in your life.  So give it a try!  Just right-click and Bam!  Check out all of the Goodies!
