Removing Cells from a Selected Range in Excel

There are a few different ways to remove cells from a selected range in Excel. One way is to delete the cells outright. To do this, simply select the cells you want to delete and press the "Delete" key on your keyboard. The cells will be deleted and the remaining cells will shift over to fill the empty space.

Another way to remove cells from a selected range is to "clear" them. This means that the cell contents will be erased, but the cell itself will remain. To clear a cell, right-click on it and select "Clear Contents" from the menu that appears. The cell will be emptied and you can now enter new data into it.

If you want to remove an entire row or column, you can also use the "Delete" key. Simply select the row or column you want to delete and press the "Delete" key. The row or column will be deleted and the remaining cells will shift over to fill the empty space.
