Hi
I did simple formula = range1 - range2 and then hit ctrl+alt+enter and I got -2. By accident, I double clicked on -2 and went inside the cell in edit mode then I click anywhere outside that cell, then excel showed me the result as you can see below:

My question, how can I get excel to display the result like that without me double clicking the cell then click outside (that was by accident).
Also please, I entered ctrl+alt+enter to make the formula array formula. I remember around 1 year ago, ExcelIsFun said in one his video that the Office 365, you do not need to enter Ctrl+Alt+delete anymore, did I hear that right? Thank you very much.

Just enter the formula normally (ie without CSE)
