Deleting columns

I want the columns to be completely gone- and the rows- I only want to be
able to see the column in which I have data and then for only those rows of
cells. How do I delete them?

The long and the short - you cannot!

A workaround is to work in page break preview.

You cannot delete.

Hide what you don't want to see.

You should be able to do it. I've done it before in the previous version of
Excel and now for the life of me, I cannot figure out where those menus are.

Check out the blue area to the right of column L.

This is the answer, hide the unused columns:
- Click on the F to select column F
- While holding Shift, hit the End key, and then the Right Arrow key
this will select all columns from F to the end
- Format - Column - Hide (or right-click on the column headings and pick Hide)
