If you’re asking how to remove rows in Excel, you’re in the right place! To find the answer, we’ll use the data table you can see right in front of you now.
First, you need to click on the selected row heading represented by a number located on the left side of the spreadsheet. That’s how you mark the row you want to remove. In our case, this is gonna be row 3 with Lucy.
Now right-click and choose the option ‘Delete’.
And that’s all you need to do! You may have spotted that the order of the rows got adjusted to the change we’ve made. George’s not in row 4 anymore, but he’s moved to row 3.
And here are two tips to make your life with Excel easier:
If you need to remove multiple rows that are next to each other at once, select the first row of the batch – click on the left button of the mouse, then hold and drag through all the rows you want to delete.
You don’t need to waste your time counting the number of rows you’re highlighting – Excel will do that for you! Just look at the little box on the right where you’ll see the selected row count.
Once you’ve marked all the rows you want to remove, repeat the steps you already know – right-click into the highlighted area and select ‘Delete’.
But watch out!
If the rows you need to delete are not consecutive, you’ll have to try a slightly different way to remove them.
Select the rows by clicking on the first one, then find and press on the keyboard the ‘Ctrl’ key. While holding it, select any row you need by simply clicking on it. Let’s pick rows 4, 7 and 10, now.
Use the right-click, choose ‘Delete’, and we’re done!
There’s one thing to keep in mind, though.
In this tutorial, you saw how to delete rows from a spreadsheet. Before you remove any rows, make sure you won’t need the data they contain, since all the information becomes lost after deletion.
If you still need the information contained in the rows you intend to remove, it’s always better to hide them.
