Deselect with the CTRL key in Excel

You can now deselect with the CTRL key in Excel. Version 1801 of Office 365 Excel allows you to deselect/unselect with the CTRL key. This was one of the most requested features of Excel users. Version 1801 was released on December 11, 2017. If you don’t have it yet, you will soon.

This comes in handy, as shown in the video above when selecting non-adjacent ranges, makes pie and bar charts, and other useful features.
