How can I move cells with the mouse?

Drag and drop to move cells in Excel

While cut and paste can be used in Excel to move cells from one place to another, major time savings can be had from using drag and drop.

Select the cells you want to move and release the mouse button. Move the cursor to any edge of the selected cells (the cursor will change to a white arrow), click and hold the mouse button down and move to the required place. Release the mouse button and the cells will be moved to the new position.
