4. So click on the + sign of Home in the Main Tabs to bring down the list in the Home tab.

5. Click on ‘New Group’ to add the new group to the Home tab

6. Click on ‘Rename’ to rename it. Here, I have renamed the new group ‘Print Table

Now you have the Print Table tab added to the Home tab group. You can move it up or down to the location you want it.

7. Now, add the Print List from the dropdown list to the new group tab you created

8. Click ok

9. Go to Home tab and select the ‘Print Table’ command you just added


You have to select any cell in the list or table to activate the ‘Print Table tab. If the table or list is not selected, the tab will not be activated as shown below:

10. Now you can select any cell in the table you want to print and click on ‘Print Table’ to print the list or table.
