Format Cells in Excel More Efficiently

by Yehuda Cagen 2. September 2010 07:46


When typing many words into a single cell in Excel, you might find it looking disorganized.


Or, perhaps when you print an Excel spreadsheet, your cells aren’t wide enough to display all the information it contains?


Houston computer service expert Cheryl Smith shares a few tips on how to format the cells to fit your preferences.


There are several methods, to accomplish this task, but here is one shortcut that works. Using you mouse, click between the two letters of the cells in which you would like to alter.


§         At this point you can either drag the cell to desired width


§         Double click the mouse and Excel will format for you.


Like any function in Excel, there are many ways to do what you would like to accomplish. By going to the Format tab on the toolbar, you also have the ability to change width and height of columns and rows.
