    switch windows Excel

    I can't believe after all these years there is not an excel shortcut for "switch windows".

    Hi Fred.

    Yes, [Ctrl][F6] does the same.
    ..on my laptop, I prefer [Ctrl][Tab] to [Ctrl][F6] because my function keys require me to press key [Fn]
    ..so it would be [Ctrl][Fn][F6] which gets my fingers tangled up.

    If there are just two Excel windows, pressing [Ctrl][Tab] just toggles between the two windows.
    If there are more Excel Windows, you can use [Ctrl][Tab] to move forwards and [Ctrl[Shift][Tab] to move backwards between windows.

    Hi Zeddy,

    I often forget about CTRL+Tab bcs that's used to insert a real tab in a Word table. I think it has a similar use in PPT.

    For 2 windows in Excel, CTRL+F6 does the same as CTRL+Tab. But for more than 2, your shortcuts do come in handy.

    BTW: did you ever get to NY last fall ?

    Hi Fred

    ..I had the most brilliant time in NY last autumn.
    Stonking top-class amazing trip. Fabulous time.
    Since then, been back and forth between London and Newcastle each week.
    Right now, I'm back again in hospital, just back from an MRI scan.
    Been in 3 days so far. Hope to get out soon.
    I can work anywhere me.

    To your good health and an early exit from the hospital.

    Glad you enjoyed NY.
