We’re a team of problem solvers, world travelers, idea guys, and doers, working to make using Excel on a Mac a better experience.

That’s enough about us -- whether you are new to Excel for Mac or an experienced user, you probably want to spend less time manipulating data and more time thinking. The Excel Skin will help you do that. If you are a PC user hesitant about switching to Mac because you don’t want to give up your customized menus and shortcuts, well, the Excel Skin just might be the myth-buster you need. Excel for Mac is just as capable as it is for the PC. And with the Excel Skin, you’ll relearn your old shortcuts in no time.

The Excel Skin makes it easy to be as proficient and efficient in Excel for Mac as on any other platform. Powerful shortcuts are presented intuitively on an elegant silicone keyboard skin. Shortcut and modifier keys are printed by color and heat fused onto our high quality silicone to ensure durability.

The Excel Skin a small product that will make a big difference in your life.


Before diving into the New Sheet shortcut in Excel for Mac we must make sure our keyboard settings are set to disable the default functions of the Function keys. This allows us to use the Function keys as shortcuts, and not as volume or brightness control that Mac defaults to.

One of our first blog posts shows how to change your settings to work with the Excel Skin: Using your Excel Skin

Now that we have changed the settings we can execute this easy, one modifier key shortcut.

While in any worksheet in Microsoft Excel, click Shift + F11

A new worksheet will appear as a tab in the bottom left of the Excel window.


And it’s that easy! Having multiple sheets in the same workbook can help keep your data clean and easy to read, as well as all in the one attachment. I always suggest transferring all data that is being used into the same workbook for easy access.
