Transcript of the video:

Hey, welcome back to the MrExcel netcast, I'm Bill Jelen. Great tip today sent in by Rick from Madison, Alabama.

Now the first part of this tip is something I'm sure that I've shown before. If you have a mouse that has a scroll wheel, you can quickly zoom in and out by holding down the Ctrl key, and then just rolling the mouse up or down to zoom in or out. So you don't have to go use the zoom drop-down in the old Excel 2003, or even the zoom slider here in Excel 2007.

Now, that's not Rick's tip. Rick found another cool thing. He says that the mouse pointer's up here above the ribbon, and you just simply scroll the mouse wheel, you're very quickly going to jump from ribbon tab to ribbon tab to ribbon tab. So a great way to very quickly negotiate from one tab to the next; just scroll the mouse wheel out there and you can change from ribbon tab to ribbon tab. Very cool trick.

Want to thank Rick for sending it in, I'll be sending out an Excel master pin; and I want to thank you for stopping by. We'll see you next time for another netcast from MrExcel.
