Excel: Select rows and columns

In the previous lesson, I presented a few ways to select cells and ranges. This time, I will show you a few methods for selecting columns and rows. 

Selecting with mouse

To select multiple columns at once, click one of the letters at the top of the worksheet area and without releasing the mouse button, drag it to the right or left. In the same way, you can also select rows.

 

Selecting non-adjacent rows or columns

If you want to select multiple non-adjacent rows, you can do this by clicking the rows' numbers while holding down the Ctrl key.

 

Using keyboard shortcuts to select rows and columns

You can also select rows or columns by using the keyboard shortcuts. Use Shift + Space to select the entire row and Ctrl + Space to select the entire column.
