How to insert a column in Excel: The shortcut way

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 don't know all of the shortcuts that can make your life a lot easier. One of the most common things people do in Excel is insert columns. And while it's not difficult to do, it can be a bit time-consuming if you're doing it the long way. But there's a shortcut way that can save you a lot of time.

The first thing you need to do is select the column where you want to insert the new column. To do this, click on the letter at the top of the column. For example, if you want to insert a column between columns B and C, you would click on column C. Once you've done that, right-click and select "Insert."

A dialog box will appear and you'll need to select the "Shift cells right" option. Then, click "OK."

And that's it! You've inserted a new column into your Excel spreadsheet using the shortcut method. This method is much faster than the long way, which involves selecting the entire column to the right of where you want to insert the new column and then insert the column.
