Unhide multiple worksheets at once
We can hide several worksheets at once, but we can only show them individually.
Although the VBA can solve this issue with some lines of code, but it would be a great improvement if you add this capability to Excel as a build in feature.

This would be helpful I have written VBA to get around this problem.

Thank you for the helpful sharing. Excel is also the topic I'm interested in ( https://sophuc.com ). Hope to learn more from you.

The ideal way would involve three options:
1) an "all" option
2) a hold down ctrl key and select from a drop-down or list to pick out non sequential sheets
3) a hold down shift key to select contiguous sheets as a group
And while we are about it, how about an option to sort and rearrange sheets by name
I agree to all the comments as to being easy to hide, but a hassle to unhide multiple tabs, this needs to be built in.
It’s ridiculous that this hasn’t already been available
While a macro can be used to unhide all sheets, it would be most helpful if I could select and unhide multiple random sheets from the list without it having to be an all-or-one proposition. I would like to see a selection process similar to selecting multiple sheets for any other purpose: "Ctrl + click + click + click" to select any sheets from the list, or "Ctrl + Shift + click" to select several consecutively-listed sheets.
There is a macro to unhide all sheets. While helpful I do agree that we should be able to just ctrl or shift click multiple sheets and unhide in the existing menu.
If anybody wants help with the macro I mentioned feel free to contact me.
I work with a lot of workbooks that contain many hidden sheets. Unhiding many sheets at one time would be a great time-saver.
