Thanks for this article, useful but I'm missing one piece;

How can I select rows starting from "42" to the end of the sheet (so I can hide them) followed by select column "R" to the end where I can then hide them..

Crosswalk for 2011-2016 shortcuts I have found most useful

Delete rows or columns: Ctrl K becomes Ctrl -
Blank Cell contents: Ctrl B becomes Fn Delete

Too bad Microsoft doesn't provide an alphabetical or sortable (maybe in a spreadsheet?!) crosswalk of all the shortcuts!

Thanks for your contribution.
