A Cheat Sheet to get more out of Microsoft Excel
Ever wanted just the Cliff Notes version of Excel? We've got you covered with the Excel Power Users Quick Guide - and it's free.
In this universe of crowded excel shortcuts, let me share with you five less-known shortcut keys of Excel which I believe a lot of you wouldn’t have used till now. I have handpicked these based on the use case from my interaction with 2,000+ classroom participants. I’m sure it will help you.
List of Shortcuts covered are:
Whenever you write a formula like Vlookup normally what we do, we write = Vl and press Tab so automatically it comes and we click the fx (function) button to complete the formula. Next time we won’t do this. Next time we will write = vl, press Tab and then press Ctrl + A. It automatically gives us the function argument box. And it works with all formulas.
If I put = SUM, then press Ctrl + A to open function arguments box. If you put a dummy number 1 in the box, then press Tab writes 2 then press Tab 3 automatically comes.
If I want to go to the previous box than Shift + Tab key and we can change the number. TAB key for forward and Shift + Tab key for the previous box.
If we press Shift+ F3 than an automatically Function Argument Box opens and we can manipulate the numbers as we wish.
If we want to see all the formulas used in your file, then the shortcut key Ctrl + ~.
What is a back quote? We will get two different characters on the same key immediately above on TAB key. One is back Quote ` another is Tilde ~.
If we press Ctrl + ~ we can see all the formulas on the page.
