To clear contents from a cell or a range of cells in Excel you need to use the “Delete” button from the keyboard. This key works the same even if you have selected one cell, multiple non-continues cells, or a range of cells.



Apart from that, you can also use the following keys to get the same thing done.

  • Backspace: Even though backspace is not used for clearing the content, but it works almost same. When you select a cell and press the backspace it clears the content from the cell and edit it.
  • Alt ➜ H ➜ E ➜ A: This keyboard shortcut activates the “Clear Content” option from the Home Tab.
