How can I deselect all cells via keyboard without changing the active cell?
Shift + Backspace should do the trick(tried it on Excel 2016)
Double Click in a cell outside the selection area to de-select. Works in Office 2016 for Mac, using Version 15.33 (170409).
Note: Using the Escape key, Single Click and Shift+Delete doesn't deselect the area (for me using Office 2016 for Mac).
Required, but never shown
