Google Sheets Beginners: Accessing the Keyboard Shortcuts (32)

Accessing the keyboard shortcuts in Google Sheets

Learning keyboard shortcuts are a must to improve performance when using Google Sheets.

Urban myth or not, I remember hearing a story about a manager in the financial industry who took away his new charge’s mouse and made sure the rest of the team didn’t give them one. This shocking bit of tough-love was to force their charge into using keyboard shortcuts because they knew that it dramatically improved their ability to quickly negotiate a spreadsheet.

I have been tempted to do this with my own staff over the years only, I suppose, tempered by the zeitgeist of this era.

In this short tutorial, we will cover how to access and negotiate the shortcuts menu so you can start to memorise the shortcuts you need to be successful as a Google Sheets ninja.

Google Sheets Shorts: Beginners

If your work life is Google Sheets, then you really need to master
the shortcuts to improve your efficiency. One way to do this is by
having a handy cheat sheet at hand for you to quickly reference. The
problem is that cheatsheets go missing and get in the way, but not
mousepads. They are right there beside you. So I thought, what about
a mousepad with a cheat sheet on it. The design is what you see
below. Take a look! It’s well worth a buy and helps support me to
build more content for you.
