Go to Home Ribbon tab >> Number Group

Then choose the Number format from the combo box.


In short, select the number and press Ctrl+Shift+1


There is an idea related to this topic found here.

It suggests stopping Excel from changing large numbers to scientific notation.
I advise you to vote for it.
