Excel Shortcut - Macro Security

Excel Shortcut - Macro Security

I love VBA macros in Excel. But if I give someone a small macro, and if you've never used macros, you need to enable macros on your copy of Excel. Today, a keyboard shortcut to make this simpler.

Change Macro Security with Alt + T, M, S. Activate Add-Ins with Alt + T, I

These are really useful now that the settings are buried deep in Excel options.

Thanks to Ron de Bruin for sending in this idea.
