Top Ten New Features in Excel 2013
Total touchscreen support
Excel 2013 isn’t just the best spreadsheet program for your Windows desktop and laptop PC, it’s also the best on your Windows tablet and smartphone.
To make sure that the Excel 2013 touchscreen experience is as rich and rewarding as with a physical keyboard and mouse, Excel 2013 supports a special Touch mode that puts more space between command buttons on the Ribbon, making them easier to select with your finger or stylus along with all major touchscreen gestures as well as the use of the Windows Touch Pointer.
Moreover, the Touch keyboard (which also offers a Writing Pad mode) is expandable, giving you access to all special cursor movement keys such as Home, End, PgUp and PgDn enabling you to use any of the keyboard shortcuts for moving the cell pointer supported by any standard physical keyboard.
