How to set the print area in Google Sheets and Excel

Both Google Sheets and Excel files can be printed. If you want to leave out columns or rows, we may print the whole workbook, which contains one or several spreadsheets, print a single sheet, or print just some part of the spreadsheet. Printing a certain part of Excel or Google Sheets requires setting the print area before printing. Setting the print area in google sheets and excel Sheets is explained in the steps below.
