Save time with Excel shortcuts

If you've spent any time with Excel, you probably know that the Enter key advances you to the next cell in a column, and the arrow keys move your focus to the next cell in any direction. Here are some lesser known shortcuts you may want to add to your repertoire:

Fill down: Ctrl+D

Fill right: Ctrl+R

Create chart in new tab from selected cells: F11

Insert today's date: Ctrl+semicolon

Insert current time: Ctrl+colon

Enter hyperlink: Ctrl+K

Access Name Manager: Ctrl+F3

Add blank cells: Ctrl+plus

Delete cells: Ctrl+hyphen

Also, if you have a value that you want entered into a number of cells, select all of your target cells, type it, and then use Ctrl+Enter to fill all of them.
