Selecting multiple cells with the Mouse in Microsoft Excel for Mac can be an inaccurate and messy affair.  Thankfully, with the help of the Excel Skin, we don’t have to use the mouse. We can keep our hands on the keyboard and select our cells with accuracy using the Shift and arrow keys.  

Here is our data: 

I’d like to select George, Anna, Brian, and David without using my mouse at all, how do I do it?  

First scroll to one of the cells you wish to select with the arrow keys.  

Now to select the others hold the Shift key and use the arrow keys.  

⇧arrow

I am going to click the down arrow once to select Anna, then the right arrow once to select Brian and David:

And there you have it!  I’ve selected the 4 cells I wanted to accurately and without using the mouse. After all, you can never have enough keyboard!
