excel Selecting Objects

Selecting objects in Excel conforms to standard Windows practices. You can select a range of
cells by clicking and dragging. (Learning the keyboard shortcuts is more efficient, however.)
Clicking an object that has been placed on the drawing layer selects the object. To select multiple
objects or noncontiguous cells, press Ctrl while you select the objects or cells.
Clicking a chart selects a specific object within the chart. To select the chart object
itself, press Ctrl while you click the chart.
If an object has a macro assigned to it, clicking the object executes the macro. To actually select
such an object, right-click it and press Esc to hide the shortcut menu. Or press Ctrl while you click
the object.
