Display AutoComplete list

Windows shortcut 
Alt
Mac shortcut 

This shortcut allows you to display various lists within Excel without using a mouse.

With Alt + down arrow, you can access lists in 3 different contexts:

(1) Access autocomplete items when doing repetitive data entry in a column – previously entered values in cells above will be displayed when autocomplete is enabled.

(2) Access filter drop-down menus when working in a filtered list or table – unique values that appear in a list or column will be displayed with a checkbox to allow filtering.

(3) Access data validation lists when input is restricted by data validation – when a list is used for data validation, the items in that list are displayed.

Just want to thank you for these snippets, this is just so awesome and has certainly increased my ability to use Excel more effectively. -Peter
