1) Select All with a click

Instead of executing the Select All shortcut, there is a simple button built into every spreadsheet that will select all data in that spreadsheet.


2) Using the Formula Builder

We can’t always remember every formula in Excel, which is why we have the Formula Builder! With the Formula Builder you can search for specific formulas by name, insert the function, add your data, and receive any assistance through the Formula Builder. Open the Formula Builder by clicking the fx Insert button in the Formulas tab, or by executing the Formula Builder shortcut.

You will be able to search categorically when clicking the button in the Formulas tab.  

3) Remove Duplicates

Excel is one of the best programs for removing duplicate values. All you must do is copy your data into an Excel spreadsheet, and click on the Remove Duplicates button. I found this especially useful when I found out I had duplicate .jpg files taking up space on my computer, Excel identified and helped me remove those files with a click.

How do we do it? Select the data you’d like to analyze, then click the Remove Duplicates button in the Data tab.

A dialog box will appear telling you how many duplicates were found. Click Remove Duplicates in the bottom right to erase these duplicates from the spreadsheet.
