Quickly Select Entire Sheet

I’ve talk to several people the last few days that weren’t aware of this simple trick.  Instead of using your mouse to select all the cells on your spreadsheet, Excel has a built-in way of quick selecting everything. 

By clicking in the top-left square, above the row numbers and left of the column letters, you can quickly select your currently active spreadsheet.  This can be useful if you want to select everything and copy it to another sheet, or if you want to quickly delete everything selected.  Check out the image below:
