Make the Dollar Sign in Excel with a Shortcut

If you work with numbers in Microsoft Excel, you'll eventually need to format them as currency. The first step is to add the dollar sign. You can do this manually by pressing the Shift key and the number 4 key at the same time, but there's a quicker way. With a little bit of set up, you can create a shortcut that will automatically format numbers as currency with the dollar sign.

To start, open the Microsoft Excel application on your computer. Then, click on the cell where you want to enter a number. In the cell, type the number you want to format as currency. For this example, we'll use the number 1234.

Once you've typed the number, press the Alt key and the equal sign (=) key at the same time. This will open the Format Cells dialog box. In the dialog box, select the Currency category from the list on the left. Then, select the currency you want to use from the Symbol drop-down list. For this example, we'll select the US Dollar sign.

Once you've selected the currency, click on the OK button. This will close the dialog box and apply the currency format to the number in the cell. You'll see that the number is now formatted as currency, with the dollar sign in front of it.

You can use this same shortcut to format numbers as currency in other currencies as well. Simply select the currency you want to use from the Symbol drop-down list in the Format Cells dialog box. You can also use this shortcut to format numbers as currency in other cells in the spreadsheet. Simply select the cells you want to format and press the Alt key and the equal sign (=) key at the same time.

You can also use this shortcut to format numbers as currency in other Microsoft Office applications. For example, you can use it in Microsoft Word to format numbers in a document. To do this, select the cells you want to format and press the Alt key and the equal sign (=) key at the same time. This will open the Format Cells dialog box. In the dialog box, select the Currency category from the list on the left. Then, select the currency you want to use from the Symbol drop-down list.
