Along with the rest of Microsoft Office’s suite of programs, Excel is one of the most popular applications used by businesses worldwide. As the most well known and frequently used spreadsheet application, Excel has endless uses for organizations of any size and type.

That being said, Excel is often the most daunting Microsoft program to learn to use. With so many features and capabilities available, many users opt to stick with its most basic functions. However, with just a little effort you can quickly learn shortcuts and tricks that can make daily tasks much easier, and save you a lot of time.

A great example of something very simple that you can learn very quickly is electing a long range of cells.

Give this tip a try:

  • Move the mouse pointer to the starting cell.
  • Press F8 to activate the ‘Extend’ function.
  • Either use your arrow keys or use your mouse to click on the ending row and/or
  • All cells will now be highlighted.
  • Press Esc to end ‘Extend’.

Now, you’re free to edit your range of cells as needed!

Watch this video for a step-by-step demonstration of this process (and check out our YouTube channel for more Excel tips and other helpful bits!)
