Lesson 8: Select an Entire Row or Column


Select an entire row or column

You may sometimes need to select an entire row or column at once. Luckily, there are a few shortcuts that can help with this.

  • To select an entire row, click the row number or press Shift+spacebar on your keyboard.
  • To select an entire column, click the column letter or press Ctrl+spacebar.
  • To select multiple rows or columns, click and drag over several row numbers or column letters.

These shortcuts can save you a lot of time if you need to add formatting to your spreadsheet, add or delete rows, or complete other tasks in Excel.
