In Excel, you can duplicate a worksheet by dragging it to a new location. Here are the steps to duplicate a worksheet using this method:

  1. Navigate to the worksheet tab:
    • Locate the worksheet tab that you want to duplicate at the bottom of the Excel window.
  2. Hold down the Ctrl key:
    • While holding down the Ctrl key on your keyboard, click and drag the worksheet tab to the right or left.
  3. Release the mouse button and Ctrl key:
    • Release the mouse button and the Ctrl key to drop the duplicated worksheet in the new location.
  4. Optional: Rename the duplicated worksheet:
    • Right-click on the duplicated worksheet tab and choose “Rename” from the context menu to give it a meaningful name.

This method creates an exact duplicate of the selected worksheet, including all the data, formatting, and other elements. The new worksheet will have the same content and layout as the original one.

Alternatively, you can also right-click on the worksheet tab, choose “Move or Copy” from the context menu, select “(move to end)” or specify the location where you want to place the copy, and check the “Create a copy” checkbox. This method provides more options for duplicating and organizing worksheets.

Choose the method that best fits your workflow or preference.
