A few quick time savers for dealing with navigating between multiple sheets in a workbook.

1) Right click on the tab scroll bars (the four sets of arrows in the lower left hand corner) to display a clickable list of worksheets in your book. It is also possible to make this list pop up from VBA code with a simple one-liner:

CommandBars("Workbook tabs").ShowPopup

2) Hit Control and Page Down to move you to the next worksheet. Ctrl + Page Up moves you to the previous.
3) Select a range of sheets by left clicking the first sheet, holding shift down, and left clicking on the last sheet. Select non-contigious sheets by left clicking on sheets with the Ctrl buttone held down.
4) Move or copy a sheet (while perserving formats) by right clicking on the sheet name and choosing Move or Copy from the menu.
