How to skip a line in Excel

Suppose we have a data set that has the home addresses of people just like shown below.

In comparison to Microsoft Word, which is a document typing software, Microsoft Excel is not a very friendly software when it comes to typing long rows of data. Excel does not offer the feature to go to a new line in a straightforward way. However, sometimes we need to insert a line break in the data that includes multiple parts of a string and we want to show the data in multiple lines separately e.g; the home address of someone.

Step 1 – Select the cell and enter editing mode
