Using the New Sheet Icon to Add Worksheets
The Insert Worksheet icon looks different in Excel 2013 and behaves differently as well. The icon is a circle with a plus sign that appears to the right of the last sheet tab. It also looks like an aerial view of a Phillips-head machine screw.
When you click this icon, a new worksheet is added to the right of the active sheet. This is better than Excel 2010, where the new worksheet was added as the last worksheet in the workbook and then had to be dragged to the correct position.
