Moving from Sheet to Sheet

This tip applies to Excel 2007, 2010, 2013, 2016, 2019, Excel in Microsoft 365, and 2021


Some people like to use the keyboard as much as possible, without relying on the mouse. It's hard to do in Excel, but the program does provide some keyboard shortcuts that can be helpful.

If you want to quickly move from one worksheet to another using the keyboard, you can do so by using Ctrl+PgUp and Ctrl+PgDown. You use Ctrl+PgUp to move toward the first worksheet in the workbook, and Ctrl+PgDown to move toward the last. When you reach the first or last worksheet, Excel does not wrap to the opposite end of the workbook if you continue to press the same shortcut key.
