Is there any shortcut or keyboard hot-key which selects the current cell? I am basically looking for the exact effect as clicking on cell bracket but achieved using keyboard instead of mouse.

I frequently comment and de-comment cells while testing my code using Alt-/ but it is very frustrating to click on cell bracket every time I want to do that.

Please let me know if this is a trivial question and I will delete it.

True. I find the close proximity of the cell brackets not ergonomically friendly. Too fine a motion to click.

Answer: Down-arrow, shift up-arrow works.

    $\begingroup$ This is acceptable for 1-line cells, but for cell with huge amount of lines you will have to press down arrow 1000 times before you achieve cell break. And I still don't see any alternative besides using "Alt ." to select whole expression $\endgroup$
