In this tutorial, we will see how can you freeze columns in google sheets. Sometimes we need freezing of a column. It becomes cumbersome if we have large data in sheets. When you scroll left to right then whole sheet slides. Hence it will hide the column one by one. Generally, we put the category in the first column. Based on that we put data into it. If we can freeze the column it becomes easy for us to know which entry belongs to which category.
