How to Use the Excel Copy Down Shortcut

If you're like most people, you probably use the copy and paste function in Microsoft Excel quite often. Did you know that there's a shortcut that can save you a lot of time when you're copying data from one cell to another? It's called the copy down shortcut, and it's a lifesaver when you need to quickly fill in a range of cells with the same data.

Here's how to use the copy down shortcut:

1. Select the cell that contains the data you want to copy.

2. Press and hold the Ctrl key on your keyboard, then press the down arrow key. This will highlight the cells below your selected cell.

3. Release the Ctrl key, then press the Enter key. This will copy the data from your selected cell into the cells below it.

4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 until all of the cells you want to fill are filled.

That's all there is to it! The next time you need to quickly fill in a range of cells with the same data, give the copy down shortcut a try.
