Enter Text Under Existing Text in Excel: 2 Second Fix

Let’s get straight to it.

To enter text in a cell that already contains text is straightforward; you simply double-click the cell go to the end of the text and start typing.

But this only adds the text to the end of the line.

To enter text underneath existing text, there are two ways to go about it.

(See the video below to see it in action)

  1. Double click the cell and move the cursor to the end of the text. Then hit ALT+Enter (Windows) and the cursor will jump to the next line. You can type away.
  2. Click in the cell with the text. In the formula bar (above all the cells) you will see a copy of the text. Move the cursor to the end of that text and again ALT+Enter. Type away.

That’s it there is no more to it.

I hope this helped.
