Quickly Edit the Cell Data/Value In Excel 2010 [Shortcut]


While entering data into Excel 2010 spreadsheet, you may not want to use mouse to select one specific cell for editing. Since Excel 2010 supports a long list of hotkey combinations to bring ease, to edit the data cell instantly, navigate to the cell and press F2 on keyboard to edit the data.


However, you can start editing a cell by double-clicking, the aforementioned shortcut lets you use only keyboard instead of using keyboard-mouse combination.

    Hi there, well, this does not work for me, I am unable to edit cells using the F2 key,
    The option to Alllow Editing directly in cells is checked and still, i can’t edit the cell, any help on this would be greatly appreciated.
