In this tutorial, we’re going to go through how to use the shortcut key for Sum in Excel.
Ready to start?
If we need to add up values let’s say in this first row, first we’ve got to select the cell where we want to display the result. Then we use the shortcut Alt and the equal sign.
Immediately, the cells that are supposed to be added are highlighted.
If you need to change the selection, just click into any corner of the area, hold the left mouse button and by dragging redefine which cells you want to add up.
Now press Enter and that’s all it takes!
And let’s have a look at another helpful way how to use the shortcut key to add values in Excel.
The first step is to select the cells containing the values you want to add up. Then use the shortcut key Alt and the equal sign.
The result appears right away in the cell just below the area you’ve selected.
The same works with adding up values by rows.
