Excel shortcuts

The insert comment shortcut in Excel that you need to know

If you work with Excel on a regular basis, then you know how important it is to be able to insert comments quickly and easily. Unfortunately, the default shortcut for inserting comments (Ctrl + Shift + F2) is not very user-friendly. Thankfully, there is a much better shortcut that you can use: Ctrl + Alt + M.

This shortcut will insert a comment at the current cell, and it will also automatically select the cell that you want to comment on. This is a huge time-saver, as you no longer have to manually select the cell that you want to comment on. Simply press Ctrl + Alt + M, type your comment, and hit Enter.

If you want to quickly edit an existing comment, simply press Ctrl + Alt + M again. This will bring up the comment editing window, where you can make any changes that you need to.

So, next time you need to insert a comment in Excel, be sure to use the Ctrl + Alt + M shortcut. It will save you a lot of time and frustration.
