If you’re new to Microsoft Excel, or new to the Excel Itch website this Getting Started page is the perfect place for you to start.

Microsoft Excel has been called the Swiss Army knife of applications, it can do so much. At first, this can seem very daunting; this is why the Excel Itch website breaks its blog posts into different categories.

You can access these various categories from the homepage and then click the category icons as shown in the image below.

Alternatively, at the top of most pages, you will see a menu with buttons that take you to the same categories.

Excel is so big that Excel Itch couldn’t possibly provide you will all the information there is about Microsoft Excel. Therefore, I created a resources page that has links to the Books, Training Courses and other Excel Experts I suggest that you might find useful.

Below is a list of blog post tutorials that will help you get started with Microsoft Excel.

To stay up to date with Excel Itch and get the best Excel information I suggest you follow the Excel Itch Facebook page or subscribe to the Excel Itch newsletter. If you prefer videos, you can subscribe to my YouTube channel.
