Deleting a column in Microsoft Excel can be a tedious task, especially if there are many columns in a worksheet. To delete a column, the user must first select the entire column by clicking on the column header. Then, the user must press the delete key on the keyboard. This process must be repeated for each column that needs to be deleted. If there are dozens or even hundreds of columns, this process can take a long time. Luckily, there is a shortcut that can be used to delete multiple columns at once.
To delete multiple columns, the user must first select the columns that they wish to delete. To do this, the user can click on the first column header, hold down the shift key, and then click on the last column header. This will select all of the columns in between the first and last column. Alternatively, the user can click on the first column header, hold down the control key (Ctrl), and then click on each additional column header that they wish to select. Once the desired columns are selected, the user can press the delete key on the keyboard and all of the selected columns will be deleted.
This shortcut can save a lot of time when deleting multiple columns in Microsoft Excel.
