We're excited to announce the release of Checkboxes to production in Excel. They are great for checklists, managing tasks and visualizing your data at a glance. With just a few clicks, you can insert Checkboxes into any cell, making your spreadsheets more dynamic and user-friendly.



To insert Checkboxes:

  1. Select the range where you want checkboxes.
  2. Select Insert > Checkbox.



To check or uncheck a Checkbox:

  • Click on the checkbox.
  • Select one or more checkboxes and press Space.


To remove Checkboxes:

  • Press the Delete key.

If any of the checkboxes were checked, Delete will uncheck them. Press Delete again to remove them.
