The Best Shortcut to Insert a Row in Excel 2013

If you're anything like me, you're always looking for ways to work smarter, not harder. That's why I'm excited to share with you my favorite shortcut for inserting a row in Excel 2013.

Here's how it works:

1. Select the cell where you want to insert the new row.

2. Press Ctrl + Shift + + (that's the plus sign).

3. Voila! A new row has been inserted above your selected cell.

This shortcut is so handy because it's so much faster than the alternative methods for inserting a row, such as right-clicking on the row header and selecting Insert from the menu, or using the Insert tab on the ribbon.

Give it a try the next time you need to insert a row in Excel 2013 and let me know how you like it!
