Quickly Deleting Rows and Columns

You probably already know how to completely delete rows or columns by using Excel’s menu commands or the tools on the ribbon. Excel provides an even quicker way to delete rows or columns, however. All you need to do is select the row or column that you want to delete, and then press Ctrl+- (that’s Ctrl and the minus sign at the same time). Excel removes the row or column from your worksheet, as directed.
