    how to clear excel filters for mac computers

    Hi everyone,

    I have this seemingly simple problem, and I feel very embarassed for asking this, but I've searched the internet off and on for months but couldn't find a solution that works for excel for mac, which is what I use. Basically, I just need to know a shortcut to clear excel filters that works for Macs. I usually do Control + Shift + L to activate or to turn on the filters, but how do I clear the filters after I have turned some filters on without having to do Control + Shift+ L again to turn them off and then on again?

    So I searched the internet and they recommended the following:

    Alt + C: I get this character in one of my cells where I had initially placed the cursor instead
    Alt + down arrow + C: I also get the same character in one of the rows
    Alt + A + C: I get this character in one of the rows where I had placed the cursor

    As you can see, none of these suggestions worked. I would think something like this would require a 5 minute googling but that didn't happen. I am reticent to use Control + Shift + L just to clear the filters because for some reason, when I use this too many times, excel would freeze and crash. It's a very erratic behavior, and so I'm trying to use this shortcut as infrequent as possible.


    Thank you for your time,

    Anita

    Not sure what your problem is, you use CSL for both on and off?

    I dont use mac, but CTRL SHIFT L toggles filters off and on on PC
    1. Use code tags for VBA. [code] Your Code [/code] (or use the # button)
