How to quickly select all cells in an Excel spreadsheet

If you're working with a large Excel spreadsheet, you may find yourself needing to select all cells in the sheet quickly. Here's a couple of ways to do it:

Method 1: Use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl + A. This will select all cells in the active sheet, regardless of which cell is currently selected.

Method 2: Click the small square in the top left corner of the sheet, above the row and column headers. This will select all cells in the sheet.

Method 3: If you only want to select a specific range of cells, you can click the first cell in the range, hold down the Shift key, and then click the last cell in the range. This will select all cells between the two cells you clicked, including the first and last cells.

Method 4: If you want to select non-adjacent cells or ranges, you can hold down the Ctrl key and click on each cell or range you want to select. This will add the cells to your selection one by one.

Method 5: If you want to select an entire row or column, you can click on the row or column header. For example, if you want to select column A, you can click on the "A" header at the top of the column. Or, if you want to select row 1, you can click on the "1" header at the left of the row.
