How to use the 'select all' shortcut in Excel

If you're like most people, you probably use the mouse to select cells in an Excel spreadsheet. But did you know that there's a keyboard shortcut that can save you a lot of time?

The 'select all' shortcut is simple to use: just press the 'Ctrl' and 'A' keys at the same time. This shortcut will select all the cells in the active sheet, from the top-left cell to the bottom-right cell.

If you only want to select a certain range of cells, you can first select the top-left cell in the range, and then press the 'Shift' key while you select the bottom-right cell. This will select the entire range of cells between the two cells.

Once you've selected the cells you want, you can do anything with them that you could do if you had selected them with the mouse. For example, you can change the font, the font size, the background color, or the alignment. You can also cut, copy, or paste the cells.

So next time you're working in Excel, try using the 'select all' shortcut. It just might save you a few seconds... or even a few minutes!
