How can we improve Excel for Windows (Desktop Application)?

Writting a paragraph instead of one straight line

when you want to write something I hate to expand the A,B,C... to make all my writing fit in one box, make it so that I can write down make it look like a paragraph instead of one hugeeeeee sentence.

Hi,

You can do this already today in Excel – two different ways to achieve slightly different results:

1. You can write one long line and then click “Wrap text” from the “Home” tab of the ribbon

2. You can use Alt + Enter to go to a new line (equivalent to using Enter in Word). When you do this, the Wrap Text formatting will be applied automatically as well.

Hope that helps, let us know if you love it!

Cheers,
Dan [MS]
