How to use the select column shortcut in Excel

If you're like most people, you probably spend a lot of time working in Microsoft Excel. And if you're like most people, you probably have a love-hate relationship with Excel. It's a great program that can do a lot of things, but it can also be very frustrating at times. One of the most frustrating things about Excel is trying to select a column of data. It's easy to select a row of data, but for some reason, selecting a column of data is much more difficult. But there is a shortcut that you can use to quickly select a column of data. Here's how to do it:

  1. First, open up Excel and find the column of data that you want to select. For this example, we'll use column A.
  2. Next, click on the header of the column. For column A, this would be the "A" at the top of the column.
  3. Now, hold down the "Shift" key on your keyboard and press the "Down Arrow" key. This will select the entire column of data.
  4. Finally, release the "Shift" key and the "Down Arrow" key and you're done! The entire column of data is now selected.

That's all there is to it. This shortcut is a great time saver if you find yourself selecting columns of data often. Give it a try the next time you're in Excel!
