How can I convert hours and minutes into just minutes?

Converting hours and minutes into minutes in Excel

There is a way to convert time expressed in hours and minutes into minutes only, even though Excel doesn't have a minutes-only format. Enter a measure of time in hours and minutes, such as 2:25, into any cell, such as A1. In another cell, enter the formula =Hour(A1)*60+minute(A1). Excel will then convert the time into minutes.
