Five Essential Excel Keyboard Shortcuts

Some keyboard shortcuts are designed to enhance your productivity in specific applications. Here are five that have long been my favourites in Excel.

 

<ctrl>;

Insert the current date. The inserted date will remain the same; it does not update when Excel recalculates formulas.

<shift><ctrl>:

Insert the current time. The inserted time will remain the same; it does not update when Excel recalculates formulas.

<ctrl>HOME

Move the selection to the beginning of the worksheet. Cell A1 becomes the active cell. Note: if freeze panes is in effect, the shortcut behaves a little differently, making the top left cell of the lower right quadrant active. If Row 1 contains the header of a structured table, <ctrl>HOME will select cell A2 rather than A1.

<ctrl>END

Selects the cell at the lower right corner of the portion of the worksheet that has actual contents.

F4

When entering formulas, make a cell reference absolute. Each time you press F4 when you are entering a formula the absolute reference changes from Absolute Cell or Range to Absolute Row/Relative Column to Absolute Column/Relative Row to Relative Cell or Range
