Let’s kick start our Awesome August 2016 with a simple but very useful set of shortcuts. 5 shortcuts, one for each weekday.
- Monday ALT + M N: Opens name manager. Very handy, if you have quite a few range names and want to edit / manage them. Remember, this is a sequence shortcut, that means, you press ALT M, let go of both keys and then press N.
- Tuesday CTRL + T: Create a new table from data in current region. For more on tables, check out our Introduction to Excel Tables page.
- Wednesday CTRL + W: Close the current workbook, while keeping Excel open.
- Thursday ALT + T O: Opens Excel options. Very easy to remember too.
- Friday CTRL F: Fridays can be hard to concentrate. Use CTRL+F to find what you want in the current workbook. Use CTRL+H if you wish to do a find replace.
Bonus for weekends – CTRL+S: Save you work before you vanish for the weekend using the CTRL+S shortcut.
That is all for now. If you are looking for more shortcuts, check out our comprehensive Excel keyboard shortcut list.
