Last updated on May 12th, 2023 at 12:17 am

The navigation within the Microsoft Excel 2013 program is centered around a series of tabs at the top of the window. Each of these tabs includes a number of tools and settings that you can use to interact with the data in your spreadsheet. There are some tabs that are displayed on every default installation of Excel 2013, and there are some tabs that are added when you have a program on your computer that is able to interact directly with Excel.

Quickbooks is one such program, and you may have noticed that you have a separate Quickbooks tab at the top of your window. However, if you do not use this tab, then you may wish to remove it from the navigation menu. Our guide below will show you how to remove the Quickbooks tab in Excel 2013.
