Excel’s status bar can come in handy by giving you additional information when you select a range of cells. By default, it displays the Average, Count, and Sum. You can also include Minimum, Maximum, and Numerical Count, or any combination of the six options.
1. Open Excel.
2. Right-click the Status Bar to bring up the Customize Status Bar menu.
3. Click to select the options you want, click again if you do not want the item displayed.
4. When finished, click anywhere on the spreadsheet to close the menu.
