“The “Right” Click Using the SHIFT F10 Shortcut

Leaving the mouse behind for speed, accuracy and efficiency is one of our core recommendations for “power” Excel users. But even for dedicated “keyboardists” there is still one mouse action that they miss – the right click. Some keyboards have a dedicated menu button (similar to this ) but there is also a shortcut that allows you to access the menu from anywhere in Excel: SHIFT F10. This handy shortcut reveals the menu and also keeps the mouse idle (or in your drawer) in circumstances when we normally click, such as drilling down in a pivot table.
