Here’s another quick key combination to use in MS Excel.

This one allows you to highlight an entire row or column with just two keys and no mouse!

  • Ctrl + Spacebar will highlight the column of the cell currently selected.
  • Shift + Spacebar will highlight the row of the cell currently selected.

You can then combine this information with the Shift + Arrow keys to highlight several rows or columns.

There you have it—just a couple more tricks to add to your ever-growing list of keyboard shortcuts.

Happy highlighting, everyone!
