Google Sheets is used by numerous people all around the globe as a reliable tool for data entry. No matter personal or official, one can create, edit and collaborate with others on spreadsheets from supported gadgets with the Google SheetsYou might have used the Google Sheets to get your work done. However, there might be a case when duplicates in Google Sheets entries ruin your whole venture. In case if you’re looking for nifty workarounds to fix the nuisance with the duplicates, let’s see how can it be avoided.

duplicates in Google Sheets

Thankfully, Google Sheets features some indirect mechanisms to eliminate the duplicates. Here, we’d be going through some of them.

Guide to Remove duplicates in Google Sheets

Using the Addon – Duplicate Remover

Google Sheets support a plethora of Add-Ons which can be installed based on your need and purpose. For removing Duplicates, Google Sheets has an add-on called Duplicate Remover. Using the add-on we can remove duplicates with few 3-4 steps.

  1. On Google Sheets, go to Tools>>Get the add-on
  2. Enter duplicate on the search bar to see all the available tools with duplicate as a keyword
  3. From the available options, choose Duplicate Remover from Adlebit

Once installed, Duplicate Remover will be featured on the Google Sheets. So, in order to remove duplicates, Go again to Tools and choose the add-on, Remove Duplicates.

Duplicate Remover Google Sheets Duplicate Remover Google Sheets Duplicate Remover Google Sheets Duplicate Remover Google Sheets Duplicate Remover Google Sheets

The add-on will take you to 3-4 series of steps to get your preference. Moreover, options such as whether you want to highlight duplicates, delete them, create a new copy of your data and such are available.

2. Conditional Formatting

In order to remove duplicates using conditional formatting, we need to go through two steps. The numero uno is to highlight the duplicates, and then to remove the highlighted contents.

  1. Highlight the duplicates
  2. Remove the highlights

First of all, we can highlight the duplicates, for that select your dataset and open the conditional formatting sidebar (under the Format menu).

Conditional Formatting Google sheets

  1. Under the “Format cells if…” option, choose custom formula is (the last option) and enter the following formula.
    =COUNTIF($A$1:$A1,A1)>1 (This formula checks for duplicates in column A).

    The duplicates in column A will be highlighted on your data set.

  2. In case you want to highlight the whole row, then change the above code a little by adding $ sign before the last A1.
=COUNTIF($A$1:$A1,$A1)>1

3. Using Pivot Tables

Pivot Tables are useful especially for exploratory data analysis. Pivot Tables can be used to search for duplicates in Google Sheets. They’re flexible and fast to use, also helps to phase out any duplicates in your data.

  1. Highlight your dataset and create a Pivot Table (under the Data menu).
  2. A new tab opens with the Pivot Table editor.
  3. Under ROWS, choose the column you want to check for duplicates (e.g. invoice number). Then in VALUES, choose another column (I often use the same one) and make sure it’s set to summarize by COUNT or COUNTA (if your column contains text), like this:Using Pivot Tables remove duplicate

You can see that duplicates values (for example 196-X) will have a count greater than 1. From here you can look up these duplicate values in your original dataset and decide how to proceed.

Apart from the above mentioned three methods to remove duplicates, there do exist some other method such as by App Script. However, these are the simplest method which you can use to phase out the duplicates.

Notepad is quite a staple tool in Windows PC. Perhaps its first existence ages back to the antiquated Window 1.0 of the 1980s. But unfortunately, as the Windows evolved incorporating powerful editor tools such as Microsoft Word, the Notepad has become kinda non-existent and obsolete. Unfortunate to say most of us are unversed that the Windows in-built text editor at its minimalist form is not just a text editor, but capable of more than a basic user can think of.

best Notepad Tricks

Here, let us see some of the cool tricks that you can try with the Notepad. For educational, pranking or any other purposes, these small but handy tricks on Notepad can prove to be fun and fascinating. Basically, the Notepad tricks mainly involve the creation of Visual Basic Scripts, saving it as .vbs file and then executing to get output described by the script. Let’s see one by one.

Best Notepad Tricks

1. Text to Speech Converter

Would you like to have your PC enunciate what you enter? Just copy and paste the code down below into notepad and save as a .vbs file.  When you play it, you’ll get a dialog box asking what you want the computer to say. Have fun.

Dim message, sapi
message=InputBox("Enter a text or sentence","Text to Speech")
Set sapi=CreateObject("sapi.spvoice")
sapi.Speak message

2. Typing Slow

Wanna make your PC  feel as slow as hell while typing? Here is a small Visual Basic script which you can just copy paste the text given below into notepad and save it as a .vbs file for execution.

WScript.Sleep 180000
WScript.Sleep 10000
Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject(“WScript.Shell”)
WshShell.Run “notepad”
WScript.Sleep 100
WshShell.AppActivate “Notepad”
WScript.Sleep 500
WshShell.SendKeys “Hel”
WScript.Sleep 500
WshShell.SendKeys “lo ”
WScript.Sleep 500
WshShell.SendKeys “, ho”
WScript.Sleep 500
WshShell.SendKeys “w a”
WScript.Sleep 500
WshShell.SendKeys “re ”
WScript.Sleep 500
WshShell.SendKeys “you”
WScript.Sleep 500
WshShell.SendKeys “? ”
WScript.Sleep 500
WshShell.SendKeys “I a”
WScript.Sleep 500
WshShell.SendKeys “m g”
WScript.Sleep 500
WshShell.SendKeys “ood”
WScript.Sleep 500
WshShell.SendKeys ” th”
WScript.Sleep 500
WshShell.SendKeys “ank”
WScript.Sleep 500
WshShell.SendKeys “s! “

It does nothing but introduces a small delay between different strings it types. You may change the values to make the typing sluggish as you want it to be.

3. Password-protected Folder using Notepad

You can protect the files and folders in your computer by using this Notepad trick. A password-protected folder is created using vb scripts and you can keep your important stuff safe.

Type the following code. Instead of “PassWord” written in the code, type in the password of your wish. Save the file as private.bat and choose File type as All Files (*.*). Double click on the file Private.bat. A Private folder will be created in which you can move the files and folders that you want to protect. Now, a password will be required to open this folder.

@ECHO OFF
if EXIST "Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}" goto UNLOCK
if NOT EXIST Private goto MDPrivate
:CONFIRM
echo Are you sure to lock this folder? (Y/N)
set/p "cho=>"
if %cho%==Y goto LOCK
if %cho%==y goto LOCK
if %cho%==n goto END
if %cho%==N goto END
echo Invalid choice.1980's
goto CONFIRM
:LOCK
ren Private "Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}"
attrib +h +s "Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}"
echo Folder locked
goto End
:UNLOCK
echo Enter password to Unlock Your Secure Folder
set/p "pass=>"
if NOT %pass%== PassWord FAIL
attrib -h -s "Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}"
ren "Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}" Private
echo Folder Unlocked successfully
goto End
:FAIL
echo Invalid password
goto end
:MDPrivate
md Private
echo Private created successfully
goto End
:End

You can add as many as files in the created Private folder. Once you’re ready to lock the folder, simply double-click on the batch file (or select and hit Enter), then choose ‘y’ on the window that pops up and hit Enter. Of course, whenever you need access to your folder, again double-click on the batch file, input your password, and hit Enter.

4. Shut-down Message

Don’t you find the process of shutting down too tedious? Open Start menu, Click on Turn Off button, Click Ok! Why not just double click an icon! Follow the steps and you can shut down your system by just double-clicking on an icon. Also, a message of your choice will be displayed.

Here we’ll be saving it as batch(.bat) file and no .vbs. Simply, you have to open Notepad, type the following code and save the file with any name but with the extension .bat.

@echo off
msg * Computer will now shut down
shutdown -c “Bye bye, and come back soon...” –s

As you can see you may change the shutdown message by replacing the sentences above in bold with your own.

5. Display Error Message

Type the following command in Notepad and save the file as error.vbs then Open the saved file and your fake error message will appear.

X=Msgbox(“Press OK and Windows will restart now.”,0+16,“Virus Infected”)

It can be used to play a prank on your non-techy friend’s PC.  Have fun!

Dangerous Scripts

So far the scripts we’ve given are non-malignant. However, there are some lethal scripts which when executed can render your PC non-functional and a complete OS re-installation should be done in order to get back the PC. So, not advised to run the following scripts. Take it as only for educational purpose and to know what the simple Notepad can do to our PC.

1. Delete Startup Files
