Control keyboard shortcuts in Excel for the web by overriding browser keyboard shortcuts

Excel for the web works in a browser, so by default some keyboard shortcuts may conflict with keyboard shortcuts that work in Excel on the desktop. You can control these shortcuts so they work the same in both versions of Excel by changing the Keyboard Shortcuts settings - just click Help > Keyboard Shortcuts to get started.

Keyboard shortcuts dialog box
  1. Search for any keyboard shortcut

  2. Choose the category of shortcuts to display in the list

  3. Select this setting to override browser shortcuts

  4. Select this filter to show only keyboard shortcuts that have been overridden
