How to use the border shortcut in Excel

If you work with data in Microsoft Excel, you probably find yourself constantly adding and removing borders from your cells. Rather than tediously clicking on each cell and selecting the appropriate border option from the Ribbon, you can use a keyboard shortcut to quickly add or remove borders from your data. In this article, we'll show you how to use the border shortcut in Excel so that you can save time and be more productive.

The first thing you need to do is select the cells that you want to add or remove borders from. You can do this by clicking on the cell or range of cells that you want to select. Once you've selected the cells, you can press the Alt + H + B shortcut on your keyboard. This shortcut will open the Borders menu in the Ribbon. From here, you can select the type of border that you want to add or remove.

If you want to remove all borders from your selection, you can click the No Border option. If you want to add a border, you can click on the desired border option. For example, if you want to add a solid line border, you would click on the Solid Line option. You can also add or remove borders from individual sides of your selection by clicking on the options in the middle of the menu.

Once you've made your selection, you can close the Borders menu and your changes will be applied to the selected cells. If you want to add or remove borders from multiple selections, you can use the Ctrl key to select multiple ranges of cells and then apply the border shortcut to all of the selected cells at once.
