How to create a refresh shortcut in Excel

If you work with data in Excel, you know how important it is to keep that data up to date. If you have to manually refresh your data every time it changes, it can be a real pain. But what if there was a way to create a shortcut that would refresh your data for you? Well, there is! In this article, we'll show you how to create a refresh shortcut in Excel.

First, open up your workbook in Excel. Then, go to the Data tab and click on the Refresh All button. This will bring up the Refresh All dialog box. In the dialog box, make sure that the checkbox next to the data range that you want to refresh is checked. Then, click on the OK button.

Now, go to the File tab and click on the Options button. In the Options dialog box, go to the Customize Ribbon tab and click on the Customize button. In the Customize Keyboard dialog box, select the Shortcuts: Refresh All command from the list on the left. Then, in the Press new shortcut key box, type in the shortcut that you want to use to refresh your data. We recommend using the F5 key. Once you've done that, click on the Assign button and then click on the Close button.

That's it! Now, every time you press the F5 key, your data will be refreshed. No more manual refreshing!
