Keyboard shortcuts make a significant difference in User Excel Performance. It allows you to work much faster and gain access to specific functions immediately. Below are my top 3 keyboard shortcuts.

QUICK ACCESS TOOLBAR: Alt+1,2,3,4,5,……etc,etc

This allows you to quickly access the quick access Toolbar. The great part about this is that you can customise which command goes to which shortcut key.

ROW AND COLUMN SELECT: Control+Space and Shift+Space

I use this on average about 1,428 times a day……give or take. I usually follow this with column adding or delete (Ctrl+ ‘+’ or ‘-‘)


This will let you access the inside of the cell without double clicking. This is especially helpful when adjusting and updating formulas.
