Would you like to learn a little-known shortcut that lets you select text vertically instead of horizontally?
OK, let’s get started.
Wouldn’t it be easier to select the text vertically?
But, you’re wondering how?
Selecting Text Vertically
Hold the ALT key down and use your mouse to highlight the text you want to delete. In this example, the Month column shown in Figure B.
Press DELETE and the entire column is deleted instantly!
Note: With this powerful shortcut, you are not limited to selecting text at the beginning of the line. You can make a vertical selection anywhere on the page.
For example, in Figure C, hold the ALT key down and using your mouse highlight the spaces between the dollar signs and the values.
Press DELETE and the spaces disappear!
