    Default quick key for color fill?

    Is there a quick key (crtl + something) to use the color fill feature in a cell?

    I am coloring in some cells in a pattern, and every time I am highlighting the cell, then clicking the color fill button (the paint can tipping over).

    Thank you!

    You can use Control Y - this will repeat the last thing you did.

    Great to have so much time that you can paint patterns.
    Another opion is to Double-Click the Format-Painter (the paintbrush) then any cell you select will also be filled. Click it once to switch it off

    Very sneaky...

    This is WAY cool... and saves my poor little fingers (I was stretching as far as I possibly could to reach the Crtl and the Y at the same time).

    Thank you again, I bow before your Excel Intelligence...
