What Are The Best Excel Shortcuts for Superscript?

To format text in superscript (raising it above the baseline) in Excel, you can use the following keyboard shortcuts:

  • Format a selected text as superscript:

    • Ctrl + Shift + +

Press and hold the Ctrl and Shift keys simultaneously, then press the plus (+) key. This shortcut applies superscript formatting to the selected text or to the text you type after using the shortcut.

  • Remove superscript formatting from selected text:

    • Ctrl + Shift + -

Press and hold the Ctrl and Shift keys simultaneously, then press the minus (-) key. This shortcut removes the superscript formatting from the selected text.

  • Format specific characters as superscript while typing:

    • Ctrl + Shift + +

Press and hold the Ctrl and Shift keys simultaneously, then press the plus (+) key. Afterward, type the characters you want to appear as superscript. Press the shortcut again to return to normal formatting.


It's important to note that these shortcuts apply superscript formatting to the entire cell or text string, rather than individual characters within a cell. If you need to format specific characters as superscript within a cell, you would have to use the formatting options in the Excel ribbon.

Additionally, some versions of Excel may have slightly different shortcut combinations or may require the use of the Fn key for laptops with function keys. If the above shortcuts don't work on your system, you can explore the Excel Help documentation or refer to your version's keyboard shortcuts for more specific information.
