Unselect selected cells with #Excel 365

First of all, I wish you a happy, healthy, and Excellent new year of 2023!

Unselect selected cells

Maybe you knew this already … we can select multiple cells/ranges by holding CTRL key. However, there was no way to unselect selected cells. No more an issue with Excel 365. Watch the following:

Hey, this is more than just for drawing. If you have tried selecting multiple ranges of same size for copying, you know how frustrating it was when you selected one cell more at the last range accidentally. You know that feeling? 😁😅 No more with Excel 365!

Are you ready for the journey to Excel 365

Are you using Excel 365? If you are, do you know there are many nice improvements in it?

A short story

Recently, my company got updated to Excel 365 and (I think) I was the only person who felt excited about it. Indeed, some colleagues would prefer to go back to Excel 2016 as they are having some performance issues with Excel 365 (probably because we are using 32-bit version of Excel 365 😅).

That’s a common response for each version update. If you have been using Excel for long enough, do you recall the general feedback from users when Excel 2003 was updated to Excel 2007? In my memory, most people complained about it as there was a major revamp of the user interface and more. People got frustrated before they realized the enhancements that made their work lives easier. Since Excel 2007, Excel has had an updated version every three years. We have Excel 2010, 2013, 2016 and 2019… In recent years, Excel 365 (always updated, sort of) is getting popular. It will become the prevailing version of Excel in the future as there will be updates every month. It will be too long for a three-year window to get updated in this digital era. If you are interested in catching up with the monthly updates of Excel, visit this Excel Blog from Microsoft.

I am still catching up with all the splendid features in Excel 365. I would love to share some practical tips with you in my blog here. Let’s start with a simple but nice feature as demonstrated above.

I will show more bites-size tips and functions for Excel 365 in coming posts. Stay tuned!
