I am helping someone to learn Excel.


I have Excel 2016 for Windows, he has Excel 2011 for Mac.


They look pretty similar, but it didn't take long to find a difference.


I can insert and delete columns/rows by selecting a column/row and pressing CTRL + or -.


He can not.


Is there a Mac equivalent or does he need to use the ribbon menu?


I tried Google but it only returned results requiring the ribbon menu.

Thanks @jamesrt , that will be very useful for all sorts of things.


It never occurred to me to just google for keyboard shortcuts, I must be losing it!
