Useful Excel keyboard shortcuts
Published 2013-08-14, by John
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.
