Hi
Lets say I have date in range A1:A10. I clicked on A1 then shift_ctr_down arrow, to highlight all the range. I still have A1 is selected. Excel now show the last cells in the range, to move up I used Ctr+backspace. Now I see A1, A2, A3,... and A1 is selected and The reset are highlighted. Now what I want to do, I want to unhiglight the other cells and I only select A1. I can do this with a mouse but I wonder if I can do it with keyboard. I tried F2 but that went inside the cell, and I do not want that. Any idea would be very much appreciated.
