In two short steps you can keep your hands on your keyboard and use this Excel shortcut for Mac to outline a cell or multiple cells on your worksheet.
Step 1: Select the cell or range of cells you wish to outline.
Step 2: Using your Excel Skin as a guide, press the following keys.
Step 3: The cells you selected now have a border.
Removing cell borders is just as easy as applying them to selected cells. To remove a border:
Step 1: Once again select the cells in which you would like to remove the border.
Step 2: Using the same two modifiers as we did when applying the border, follow the purple text associated with removing borders and press:
Step 3: The cells you selected will be now be borderless.
Unlike the default gridlines that do not print with your Excel worksheet, cell borders that you apply do appear on printed pages. This can be especially useful when trying to draw attention to specific cells that are part of a larger workbook.
Outlining cells can also be important when separating information. In a sea of Excel cells it is easy to lose track of important numbers and data that need to be available for quick viewing.
