Use This Keyboard Shortcut to Insert a Column in Excel

If you're an Excel power user, you know that there are all sorts of keyboard shortcuts that can save you time and make you more productive. One of the most useful shortcuts is the one that lets you insert a column. Here's how it works:

First, select the column where you want to insert the new column. Then press Alt+I, C. That's it! The new column will be inserted to the left of the column you selected.

This shortcut is particularly handy when you're working with large data sets. For example, let's say you have a list of names in one column and you want to add a column for each person's age. With this shortcut, you can quickly insert a new column and then type in the ages. Or, if you have a list of data that's not in any particular order, you can use this shortcut to insert a column so that you can sort the data.

One thing to keep in mind is that this shortcut only works if you have a full column selected. If you try to use it with a range of cells, it won't work. Also, this shortcut only works in Excel for Windows. If you're using a Mac, you'll need to use a different shortcut.

If you're not an Excel power user yet, this is a great shortcut to start with. It's simple to remember and it can save you a lot of time. So next time you're working in Excel, give it a try!
