Enhanced menus in Google Sheets improves findability of key features

What’s changing 

We’re updating the menus in Google Sheets to make it easier to locate the most commonly-used features.

In this update: 

  • The menu bar and right-click menus have been shortened to better fit your screen to prevent menus from being hidden off screen
  • Some features were reorganized and added to more intuitive locations (for example, you can now freeze a row or column from the right-click menu) 
  • Some descriptions of items in the menu are shorter, enabling faster recognition 
  • Icons have been added to help you locate features more easily 
  • Changes are across all menus, including File, Edit, View, Insert, Format, Date, Tools, Extensions, Help, and Accessibility.

Why it’s important 

The new design improves findability of key features, making it quicker and easier to use Sheets, especially on devices with smaller screens. 

Additional details 

Some of your favorite menu items may have moved a little, but all existing functionality is still available. We hope that their new home will be more intuitive and make it easier and faster to navigate the product.
