Do you mean the scroll bars, and what version of Excel do you have?

Not sure what arrows you mean? What do these missing arrows do? The only ones I can think of are part of the scroll bars.

If you hover mouse over the edge of the worksheet or in the corner, a double headed arrow appears. dragging this inwards will make a smaller page. It is then pssible to load a completly new worksheet side by side. However all I would like to do is get the double arrows to appear and drag outwards to fill the screen. I hope that makes sense. elsanta

It sounds like you have the window maximised. Click the button immediately to the left of the red X close button (top right of the screen).

Thanks VoG and picklefactory. I have tried full screen several times but that was not the problem, However playing around because of your suggestions I have found the double headed arrows ( I dont know how!!) but that is part of the mystery of computers/microsoft. Regards, elsanta
