Not able to select all (ctrl A) when searching (ctrl F) in Excel

New Contributor


Nothing seems to be happening when Ctrl+A is clicked. It was working previously, but when reinstalled, doesn't seem to work now. Thank you for your help!

Do you mean to select entire text in Find bar? And what is your Excel version?

Hi @Sergei Baklan,


Yes I am talking about selecting the entire text using Ctrl A in the Find Bar.


The version I am using is Version 1808. Would you have any suggestions? Would highly appreciate.  




I can't reproduce that and don't have 1808 to check. On my version it works correctly.
