Excel: CTRL+U Activates Windows Sound System Proofreader

The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft Excel for Windows, versions 4.0, 4.0a, 5.0


In Microsoft Excel, you cannot use the CTRL+U key sequence to underline text when the Windows Sound System is installed: when this system is installed, CTRL+U activates the proofreading tool. CTRL+N is the designated key sequence to enable the Sound System proofreader.


To work around this situation, add a button for the underline tool to the standard toolbar and use this button instead of the CTRL+U key sequence.

Additional query words: wss 4.00 4.00a 5.00 ctrl-u ctrl-n control U sndsys pressing press keystroke strokes shortcut proof.xla
