General Format

The General format is Excel’s default format.

It doesn’t really do much. It can be handy to use though if Excel applies a format you don’t want, like a date or a percentage.

The keyboard shortcut to apply the General format is

Ctrl + Shift + ~

Be careful if you forget the Shift key as it will display formulas. If that happens, press it again (without the Shift key) and it will revert back to normal.
