Select  ›  4. Deselect cells...

With this utility you can deselect cells, something that is normally not possible in Excel.
In most MS Windows programs you can deselect by holding the Control-key. That does not work in Excel, which is why this utility is very useful.

By default you can start this utility with the shortcut Control+Alt+D.

(Microsoft has added similar functionality in 2018/2019 to Excel 365 and Excel 2019 and newer.)
