HomeExcel Keyboard ShortcutsWrap Text (Keyboard Shortcut in Excel)

Excel has the default width and height of the cells, so when you enter the lengthy text in the cell, the part of that text spills over the cells or become invisible due to the larger size of that text.

To overcome this, Excel has the feature of wrap text which converts the text into multiple lines within the cell to fit the text within the cell. This converts the text into multiple lines and increases the height of the cell to fit the text within the cell.
