How to insert multiple rows in Microsoft Excel on your Mac or PC

To insert multiple rows in Microsoft Excel on both Mac and PC, you can follow these steps:

On Windows (PC):

  1. Open Excel: Launch Microsoft Excel on your PC.
  2. Select Rows: Click on the row number(s) below where you want to insert the new rows. If you want to insert multiple rows, select the same number of rows as you want to insert. For example, if you want to insert 3 rows, select 3 row numbers.
  3. Right-Click and Insert: Right-click on the selected row numbers and choose “Insert” from the context menu. Alternatively, you can go to the “Home” tab in the Excel ribbon, find the “Cells” group, and click on the “Insert” dropdown. Then, select “Insert Sheet Rows.”
  4. Rows Are Inserted: Excel will insert the selected number of rows above the row(s) you initially selected.

On macOS (Mac):

  1. Open Excel: Launch Microsoft Excel on your Mac.
  2. Select Rows: Click on the row number(s) below where you want to insert the new rows. Again, select the same number of rows as you want to insert.
  3. Insert Rows: Unlike Windows, you don’t have a direct “Insert” option when you right-click or use the toolbar. On macOS, you need to use the following keyboard shortcut: Control + Shift + + (plus key). Hold down the “Control” and “Shift” keys and then press the plus key. This will insert rows above the selected rows.
  4. Rows Are Inserted: Excel for Mac will insert the selected number of rows above the row(s) you initially selected.

That’s it! You’ve successfully inserted multiple rows in Microsoft Excel on both Windows and macOS. You can now enter data or perform any necessary operations within the newly inserted rows.
