Tom’s Tutorials For Excel: Entering a Function’s Arguments Tooltip in a Cell

You can press Ctrl+Shift+A in mid-entry of your worksheet functions to show their tooltips’ argument text directly in your cell, and type your function arguments right over those text tips.

Step 1
Start by entering the function name, followed by the open parentheses character.
The function’s arguments tooltip appears as usual.

Step 2
Press Ctrl+Shift+A.

Step 3
The function’s arguments tooltip text now appears in the cell. The tooltip itself is still visible.

Step 4
I dragged the tooltip away from the cell in this example.
Notice I continued to enter my VLOOKUP function arguments in the cell, directly over the tip text.
