* Excel: Press Ctrl+1 to engage the format menu in Excel.

* Excel: To quickly select a full table of contiguous cells, place your cursor anywhere in the cells and press Ctrl+ Shift+8. To select a range of data, put the cursor in the first cell and press Ctrl+Shift+8. Why it happens: Excel defines a range of data as being a series of adjacent cells that contain data.

* Windows: To rename multiple files in Explorer in a single action, highlight all the files you wish to rename and right click on any one of them. Select Rename from the menu that appears and all the files will be given the same name as the one you selected with a number in brackets differentiating them.
