Thumbs up Answer: Change cm to inches in Format Picture size

Sure, I can help you with that! Here are the steps to change the unit of measure from cm to inches in the Format Picture size tab in Excel:
  1. Right-click on the picture you want to format and select "Format Picture" from the drop-down menu.
  2. In the Format Picture pane that appears on the right-hand side of the screen, click on the "Size & Properties" tab.
  3. Under the "Size" section, you should see two fields for "Width" and "Height" with the current unit of measure displayed (likely cm).
  4. Click on the drop-down menu next to the unit of measure and select "in" for inches.
  5. The values in the "Width" and "Height" fields should now be displayed in inches instead of cm.

That's it! You've successfully changed the unit of measure from cm to inches in the Format Picture size tab in Excel. Let me know if you have any other questions or if there's anything else I can help you with.

This is a function of your Windows OS settings and not an Excel setting.

Open Control Panel then double-click Regional and Language Settings.

Under Regional OptionsCustomizeNumber change from Metric to US

It's nothing you change in Excel, it's in your regional settings in the
control panel

Just a note for the archives: In MacXL, you can set the unit of measure
on the fly to inches, cm, and mm in Preferences/General.
