Multiple lines in a cell w/o increasing column width.

Last Modified: 2020-02-17
Good evening,
I have another "senior moment". In Excel 2016 if text flows over to another column I know how to increase the column width. However, if I do not wish to do that but maintain the column width there is a short-cut key that will allow me to show the text w/o increasing the column. I have a list of Excels short-cut keys but for the life of me I cannot seem to recognize the short-cut.
