How to Hide a Tab in Google Sheets

In this post, you will learn how to make a tab invisible in Google Sheets. This function is helpful when you organize tabs as you can make irrelevant and unnecessary sheets invisible but still keep them in the file. You should be aware that a hidden sheet can be unhidden. So, we recommend you delete any irrelevant sheets or any other sheets which you don’t want others to see from a Google Sheets file instead of just hiding them by using this function.
