Keyboard Shortcuts

In Excel 2010, keyboard shortcuts that begin with the CTRL key, such as CTRL+N to create a new, blank workbook and CTRL+F to display the Find and Replace dialog box, remain the same as in previous versions of Excel.

However, shortcuts that in previous Excel versions involved pressing ALT have changed; these are now called KeyTips.

To display KeyTips in your workbook:

  1. Press ALT. Doing this makes KeyTips appear for all of the tabs on the Ribbon.
  2. Now press the corresponding key to open the tab or Quick Access Toolbar you want to use.
  3. Press the letter of the command you wish to execute.

For example, to add a comment in your workbook, you would

  1. Press ALT.
  2. Then press R to display the Review tab.
  3. Then C to insert your comment.
