Shortcuts make the work on MS Excel a lot easier. You may have noticed, as you shuffle lesser between mouse and keyboard, your speed of work grows manifold. Navigation within a sheet or between different worksheets, Excel files and other applications is a part of our daily working and so the navigation keys have a huge role to play in optimizing our efficiency. In the table we have highlighted 5 very important navigation shortcuts.

Let’s go through these shortcuts in brief and understand with the help of examples.

1. ALT + Tab / Windows Logo + Tab – This shortcut allows switching between different open applications on your system. Kindly note that Windows logo can be used for switching only in Windows 7 and above.
