The format of a spreadsheet in Google Sheets is in the form of columns and rows. Each intersection of the row and column is a cell. When you type text in a cell and press Enter, the cursor goes to the next row. There may be cases where you need to return within a cell to go to the next line in the cell.

– Type in the next line
– Press Alt+Enter each time you need to return within the cell
– Drag the border of the formula bar to expand it and display the lines in the cell

Step 3 – Multiple lines added
