This is driving me a little bit crazy. In my old PC days I used to press either F5 or F9 (I can't remember) to have Excel recalculate.

What is the Mac equivalent?

PS: Perhaps this is not the place to ask. If so, please redirect me. :)

AFAIK it's F9 on Windows .

So did you try the keystrokes Fn+F9 ?

To recalc in Mac:

Command + =

You can try also changing Excel preferences: Command , Calculation "Manually" radio button

  • For some reason fn + f9 does not work for me. CMD + = does work, however.

fn + f9 works if you disable mission control shortcut (it is defined as F9 by default)
