How to Wrap Text in Excel: Shortcut Keys to Know

If you work with text in Microsoft Excel, you may find yourself in need of a way to wrap the text so that it all appears on one line. This can be especially important when dealing with large amounts of text or when trying to create a specific format for your document. Luckily, there are a few different ways that you can wrap text in Excel.

One way to wrap text is to use the wrap text button on the home tab. This button is located in the alignment section and looks like a small icon of a sheet of paper with text on it. When you click this button, the text in the selected cells will automatically wrap to fit the width of the cell. You can also use the shortcut key Alt + H + W to wrap text.

If you want to wrap text without changing the width of the cell, you can use the wrap text option in the format cells dialog box. To access this dialog box, you can either go to the home tab and click the small arrow in the bottom right corner of the alignment section, or you can use the shortcut key Ctrl + 1. Once the format cells dialog box appears, go to the alignment tab and check the box next to wrap text. You can also use the shortcut key Alt + O + A + W to access the wrap text option in the format cells dialog box.

If you want to wrap text around a specific object in Excel, such as an image, you can use the wrap text option in the format object dialog box. To access this dialog box, you can either go to the insert tab and click the small arrow in the bottom right corner of the images section, or you can use the shortcut key Ctrl + Shift + O. Once the format object dialog box appears, go to the wrap text tab and select the wrapping option that you want. You can also use the shortcut key Alt + J + W + W to access the wrap text option in the format object dialog box.

As you can see, there are a few different ways that you can wrap text in Excel. Whether you want to use the wrap text button on the home tab, the wrap text option in the format cells dialog box, or the wrap text option in the format object dialog box, you can easily wrap text to fit the width of a cell or to wrap around an object. Just remember the shortcut keys to save time!
