Is there a keyboard function when using the keyboard that performs the same function as double-clicking the cell with a mouse to view the contents such as formulas within the cell?

Hi,

 

Press F2 to open any cell in the edit mode, which is the same as the result of double-clicking the cell.

@Haytham Amairah  amazing! Had a feeling it was a simple function too...thanks alot!
