F2 Key:

Using “F2” Key, you edit the contents of a cell in excel. If you select a cell that is filled with some value and then press “F2” Key, then it will allow you to insert at the end of the current content in the cell. However, if you press “F2” for an empty cell then it simply allows you to type in the empty cell.

If editing directly in cells is disabled in your workbook, then by pressing “F2” you can edit the contents in Formula Bar. In case you are unaware that if direct editing is disabled or not then just follow below steps:

  • Click on “File Menu”.
  • Select “Options” and then select “Advanced”.
  • In the “Advanced Option” for Excel, verify if the check-box against “Allow editing directly in cells” is ticked or not as shown in below image.
