The Top 5 Filter Shortcuts in Excel

If you work with data in Excel, you know how important it is to be able to quickly and easily filter that data to find the information you need. Excel's built-in filter function is a great tool for this, but it can be a bit cumbersome to use, especially if you're working with a large data set. That's why knowing some shortcuts for filtering data in Excel can be a huge time-saver.

Here are the top 5 filter shortcuts in Excel that every user should know:

  1. Ctrl+Shift+L - This shortcut will apply a filter to your data set. You can use it to filter by value, by cell color, or by font color. To filter by value, simply select the cells you want to filter, then press Ctrl+Shift+L. A dialog box will appear where you can enter the value you want to filter by. To filter by cell color or font color, select the cells you want to filter, then press Ctrl+Shift+L. In the dialog box that appears, select the "Filter by Color" or "Filter by Font Color" option, then choose the color you want to filter by.
  2. Ctrl+Shift+F - This shortcut will open the "Filter" dialog box, where you can choose the criteria for your filter. To use this shortcut, select the cells you want to filter, then press Ctrl+Shift+F. In the dialog box that appears, select the criteria you want to use for your filter.
  3. Ctrl+Shift+I - This shortcut will invert your filter. To use it, select the cells you want to filter, then press Ctrl+Shift+I. All of the cells that were previously filtered will now be displayed, and all of the cells that were not filtered will be hidden.
  4. Ctrl+Shift+S - This shortcut will turn your filter on or off. To use it, select the cells you want to filter, then press Ctrl+Shift+S. If your filter is currently turned off, it will be turned on. If your filter is currently turned on, it will be turned off.
  5. Ctrl+Shift+R - This shortcut will remove your filter. To use it, select the cells you want to filter, then press Ctrl+Shift+R. This will remove the filter from your data set, and all of the cells will be displayed.
