The Options dialog box is perhaps the most powerful dialog box of all, containing 10 separate screens filled with various settings for your program. Access this dialog box in the file then options.

The menu system (File, Edit, View, etc.) is a comprehensive list of most commands available in Excel. To access a menu item you can either click on it or press Alt and the under lined letter.


After some of the commands you will see “Ctrl + a letter” as with New… we see “Ctrl + N.” This is a time-saving keyboard shortcut which will execute the command without having to access the menu system.


Many of the commands are followed by an ellipsis (…) which means the command will lead to a dialog box.
