Useful Excel keyboard shortcuts


If you use Microsoft Excel as much as I do, sometimes it’s easier and faster to use keyboard shortcuts than to use repetitive mouse actions. However, it’s not always easy to find a shortcut for a particular action or command.

Below are some of the commands I find myself using often on Excel for Windows.

Select Row = shift + spacebar

Select Column = control + spacebar

Select All = control + shift + spacebar

Insert Region (row, column, or block) = make selection, then => control + shift + +

Delete Region (row, column, or block) = make selection, then => control + –

NOTE: I’ll add more as I learn about them and use them. I’ll also reformat this entry for easier reading.
