Working with Excel:
Excel can be a little intimidating at first, but you will get more comfortable over time, I promise.
That said, there are a few helpful shortcuts & commands that work in Excel, other Microsoft (MS)programs, and even some non-
Microsoft ones. I have included the key combinations so you don’t have to
dig around in the ribbon to find them.Ctrl + A =
. This key combination will select everything on a page.Ctrl + C =
. This combination will copy everything that is selected.Ctrl + X =
. This will “cut” everything that is selected and allow it to be pasted somewhere else.
Ctrl + Z =
. This will “undo” the last action you performed allowing you to undo any changes or
mistakes. Clicking this multiple times
allow you to undo multiple changes.Ctrl = Y =
. The opposite of Ctrl+Z, this command allows tou to redo something you may haveundone by mistake.
- You can add several commandsto the Quick Access bar at the very topof the MS program window by right clicking on the drop down arrow andmaking your selections. Undo andRedo are located there.
