Small fix: In Excel 2013 Shortcuts, Section 8 (Applying Borders), the second to last shortcut (Outside Borders) has an 'A' where it should have an 'S'. The note to the right explaining the shortcut correctly highlights the 'S'.

The below keyboard shortcut for switching among non-adjacent selections: 'Ctrl+Alt+Arrow Right/Ctrl+Alt+Arrow Left' - Move to the right / to the left between non-adjacent selections (with multiple ranges selected) It works great in my Excel 2010; while it is no longer available in my Excel 2013. May ask is there any fix on it or has it been removed from Excel 2013 (which I found is very useful) Thanks a lot!

how to shift the entire row to the left

Comment #45 by SHurley Jan 6, 2016 at 09:35 am  Reply

The insert row command is priceless - 'ctrl shift =' I have been working with excel for thirty years and always forget how to do this. This is much easier to remember.

Reply #1 admin Jan 6, 2016 at 03:55 pm

I know; it is too much fun; While updating the list to Excel 2016, I expanded my own use to consequently select a line before [Shift]+[Space] in combination with other line(s) in the clipboard and use it as 'Paste Insert'. Also i try to remember it as [Ctrl]+[Shift]+[+], to match it with the [-] for the delete line. Thanks for the feedback!

This shortcut seems to be missing from Excel, Data Selection: Control + . (Full stop) Move anchor cell to next corner of selected range

Thanks for checking on this; this is already included in (3) Navigate Inside Selected Text Blocks on the Excel 2013 section; i made sure it got into the 2016 version as well

Hi, There is an easy way of doing it. After you cut the desired row using CTRL+X, go to the row where you want to insert it. And then follow the sequence "Shift +space" (to select the row and then "CTRL+Shift+=" (CTRL++). This will insert the row.

Hi Anurag, In my case, I would do the following" After - select row & Ctrl +x, put your active cell in the column A - on the row you want to paste. Press the key that represent right click on the keyboard (normally it is located on the right side just next to the 'Alt' key) then press "e" and than "Enter"

Hi all, I know that using the arrow keys within a worksheet helps you move from one cell to another with ease. From some reason, I'm not able to do that anymore :-/ pressing on the arrow keys leave the same cell marked and the entire worksheet move up-down and sideways. Have you encountered this before? How can I gain control again? Thanks in advance, Meital

Reply #1 admin May 23, 2015 at 12:10 pm

on your keyboard, you probably activated the 'scroll lock' key. press that one and it should work. There are also a couple of others like my laptop has a key to disable the function keys....

I recommend saving the shortcut list in .pdf format. To do this: a) Right click the ".pdf" in the upper right hand corner b) Select "Save Target as..." from the menu c) Before hitting save as, change the name for the file from "doc" to something meaningful. d) print from Adobe Acrobat or your preferred pdf reader.

It is very helpful. Thank you for consolidating the details.
Obvious shortcuts like Arrow Keys, Page Up and Page down, etc could have been avoided as I'm sure 99% of the people who could navigate to this page would already know these.
Nevertheless.

It could be a mistake for "Work with data selection"
to "select entire column" it works in OpenOffice 4.1 you need "Ctrl" + space + "Shift" I have not tried it in excel yet as I can no longer buy the excel CD.

Hey guys! There is a shortcut I can not find anywhere! if you press Ctrl + [ on a cell it directly takes you to the liked cell where the original information is. For example, if in Sheet1 I have a call which is taking the data from the sheet2, when doing this it directly takes you to the data source cell! Fine, the question now is....how to do this on the spanish keyboard? I've been searching for this shortcut on the internet but it surprises me there is no information about it! can anyone help! Great web by the way!
