View All Formulas in Excel with a Single Click

When someone sends you an Excel file, you may want to find out where the formulas are, and where are the values.

But with everything showing as a number, it is difficult… and you need to move from cell to cell, to find out if it is indeed a number, or a calculation based on a formula.

Fortunately, there is a simple way to find out where the formulas are, and see them all, at a glance.

Simply press the Control Key and hold it. Then press the ` symbol. On most keyboards, it is just above the Tab Key on the Left of the keyboard.
