Cells in Google Sheets and Excel are basic units within a spreadsheet. Every spreadsheet has thousands of cells that are small rectangular boxes that you see when you open your spreadsheet. The cells are where you input the information you want to use in the spreadsheet. Each cell is at the intersection of a column and a row. The system organizes the columns by letter and the rows by number. It means every cell has its cell address based on its row and column. For instance, a cell in column A and row five is referred to as A5. You might need to increase the size of your cells to make information easier to read. You can adjust the cell size to fit a large text block and make your spreadsheet easier to understand, especially if you have a large amount of information within the cells. Increasing the cell size needs you to adjust all the cells in the column and row to make them bigger. There are several methods you can use to achieve this. We will provide you with the steps you can use to increase cell size in Google Sheets and Excel.
