    In the Windows version of Excel, you can hit F2 and quickly edit the contents of a cell. This shortcut does not work in the Mac version. Does anyone know if there is a similar keyboard shortcut to enter information into a cell without having to double-click the cell? (This is assuming there is already text in the cell that I do not want to overwrite by simply starting to type).

    Thanks.

    You probably need to use the fn key to access the F keys.

    fn+F2 works for me

    You can also remap keys using system preferences / keyboard shortcuts

    Unless you've customized your keyboard, fn+F2 doesn't do the same thing as Control-U

    fn+F2 copies the cell
    Control-U enters edit mode for the cell
