How to Freeze Multiple Columns in Google Sheets

Hey there fellow Google Sheets users! Today I am going to walk you through how to freeze multiple columns in Google Sheets. This can be a lifesaver when dealing with large data sets or when you want to keep certain columns visible at all times. It's a simple process that can make a big difference in your productivity, so let's get started!

Step 1: Open Your Google Sheet

The first step in freezing multiple columns is to open your Google Sheet. If you don't have one already, go ahead and create a new one or open an existing one. Once you have your Sheet open, you're ready to move onto the next step.

Step 2: Select the Columns You Want to Freeze

Next, you need to select the columns you want to freeze. To do this, click on the column letter at the top of the Sheet. If you want to freeze columns A, B, and C, for example, you would click on the letter A, hold down the Shift key, and then click on the letter C. This will select all three columns.

Step 3: Freeze the Columns

Now that you have your columns selected, it's time to freeze them. To do this, go to the "View" menu and select "Freeze". From the dropdown menu, choose "Up to Current Column". This will freeze all the columns to the left of the current column (the column you have selected).

If you want to freeze columns that are not adjacent, you will need to select each column individually and then freeze them one at a time. This can be a bit time-consuming, but it's worth it if you need to keep specific columns visible at all times.

Step 4: Adjust the Freeze

Once you have frozen your columns, you can adjust the freeze to suit your needs. You can do this by clicking on the line that separates the frozen columns from the rest of the Sheet. You can then drag the line to the left or right to adjust the width of the frozen columns.

You can also adjust the freeze by going to the "View" menu and selecting "Freeze". From the dropdown menu, you can choose to freeze up to a specific row (for example, if you want to keep your headings visible at all times) or you can choose to unfreeze the columns altogether.

Step 5: Save Your Changes

Once you have adjusted the freeze to suit your needs, it's important to save your changes. To do this, simply click on "File" in the top left corner of your Sheet and select "Save" or "Save As" if you want to save a copy with a different name.


And there you have it, folks! Now you know how to freeze multiple columns in Google Sheets. This is a simple but powerful tool that can save you time and make working with large data sets much more manageable.

Remember, if you want to unfreeze your columns or adjust the freeze in any way, you can always go back to the "View" menu and select "Freeze" from the dropdown menu. And as always, don't forget to save your changes!
