How to change sheets quickly in Excel with shortcuts

If you're anything like me, you're always looking for ways to work more efficiently in Excel. One way to do this is to use keyboard shortcuts to quickly change sheets. Here are some of my favorite shortcuts for quickly changing sheets in Excel:

Ctrl + Page Up/Page Down

This shortcut is my go-to for quickly changing sheets in Excel. Simply hold down the Ctrl key and press either the Page Up or Page Down key to move to the previous or next sheet, respectively. You can also use the Ctrl + Arrow keys to move between sheets.

Ctrl + Tab

Another great shortcut for quickly changing sheets in Excel is Ctrl + Tab. This shortcut will open up the Sheet Tabs dialog box, which allows you to quickly select the sheet you want to move to. Simply use the arrow keys to navigate to the sheet you want, then press Enter to select it.

Ctrl + Shift + Tab

This shortcut is the same as Ctrl + Tab, except it moves in the reverse direction. So, if you're currently on the last sheet in your workbook and you want to move to the first sheet, you can use this shortcut to do so.

F5

The F5 shortcut will open the Go To dialog box, which allows you to quickly jump to any sheet in your workbook. Simply type the name of the sheet you want to move to in the Sheet field and press Enter.

Ctrl + G

This shortcut will also open the Go To dialog box. However, you can also use it to quickly select a range of cells on a sheet. Simply type the cell address you want to move to in the Reference field and press Enter.

Alt + F11

This shortcut will open the Visual Basic Editor, which is where you can create and edit macros. If you have a macro that moves to a specific sheet, you can use this shortcut to quickly run the macro.

Ctrl + F6

This shortcut will cycle through all the open workbooks. So, if you have multiple workbooks open and you want to quickly move between them, you can use this shortcut.

Ctrl + F11

This shortcut will create a new workbook. So, if you're working on one sheet and you want to quickly move to a new sheet in a new workbook, you can use this shortcut.

These are just a few of the many shortcuts you can use to quickly change sheets in Excel. Experiment with different shortcuts and see which ones work best for you. And, if you know of any other great shortcuts for quickly changing sheets in Excel, please share them in the comments below!
