15+ Excel Tab Shortcuts for Fast Navigation

If you're anything like me, you're always looking for ways to work faster and more efficiently in Excel. One way to do that is to use keyboard shortcuts to navigate between tabs. Here are 15+ shortcuts that will help you move around your workbook quickly and easily:

  1. Ctrl + Page Up/Page Down - This shortcut will take you to the next or previous tab in your workbook. If you're on the first or last tab, it will wrap around to the other side.
  2. Ctrl + Tab - This shortcut is similar to the one above, but it will open up a new tab if one doesn't already exist. This is especially useful when you're working with multiple workbooks.
  3. Ctrl + Shift + Tab - This shortcut does the opposite of the one above. It will take you to the previous tab, or if you're on the first tab, it will wrap around to the last tab.
  4. Ctrl + W - This shortcut will close the current tab. If you have multiple tabs open, it will ask you which one you want to close.
  5. Ctrl + N - This shortcut will create a new workbook.
  6. Ctrl + O - This shortcut will open an existing workbook.
  7. Ctrl + S - This shortcut will save the current workbook.
