The best shortcut for hiding cells in Excel

If you're like most people, you probably use Excel to keep track of all sorts of data. And, if you're like most people, you probably have a lot of data that you don't want everyone to see. Maybe it's sensitive data, like customer information or financial data. Maybe it's just data that's not relevant to the task at hand. Either way, you probably want to find a way to hide cells in Excel so that only you can see them.

There are a few different ways to hide cells in Excel. The most common way is to use the 'Hide' function. To do this, select the cells you want to hide, then click 'Format' > 'Hide'. The cells will be hidden, but they'll still be there - you can unhide them by clicking 'Format' > 'Unhide'.

Another way to hide cells is to use the 'Protect Sheet' function. This will allow you to password-protect your sheet, so that only people with the password can view it. To do this, click 'Tools' > 'Protection' > 'Protect Sheet'. You'll be prompted to enter a password, and then you can choose which cells to protect. Protected cells will be hidden, but they can be unlocked with the password.

The last way to hide cells is to use the 'Filter' function. This will allow you to hide entire rows or columns of data. To do this, click 'Data' > 'Filter'. Then, select the column or row you want to hide, and click the 'Hide' button. The data will be hidden, but you can unhide it by clicking the 'Unhide' button.

So, which is the best way to hide cells in Excel? Well, it depends on your needs. If you just want to hide a few cells, then the 'Hide' function is probably the best way to go. If you want to hide an entire sheet of data, then the 'Protect Sheet' function is the best way to go. And if you want to hide an entire row or column of data, then the 'Filter' function is the best way to go.
