If you're like most people, you probably use the filter function in Excel quite often. Filters are a great way to quickly narrow down a large data set to only the information you need. However, filters can also be a pain to remove if you accidentally apply one when you didn't mean to, or if you simply want to start over with a new filter. Fortunately, there's a quick and easy way to clear filters using shortcut keys, and we'll show you how in this article.
The first thing you need to do is make sure that your data set is selected. You can do this by clicking on the top-left cell in your data set. Once your data set is selected, press the following shortcut keys: Ctrl + Shift + L. This shortcut will instantly clear any filters that have been applied to your data set.
If you want to remove filters from only certain columns, you can select those columns before pressing the shortcut keys. For example, if you only want to remove filters from columns A and B, you would first click on the header of column A, then hold down the Shift key and click on the header of column B. Once both columns are selected, you can press the shortcut keys to clear the filters.
That's all there is to it! Clearing filters with shortcut keys is a quick and easy way to reset your data set and start over with a new filter. Give it a try the next time you need to remove filters from your Excel spreadsheet.
