How to add percentage symbol for multiple numbers in cells in Excel?

Supposing you need to add a percentage symbol for a number, most of time you may select this cell first, and then click the button under Home tab, or right click > Format cells > Percentage > OK. By doing this, it won't only add a percentage sign to the number, but also to multiply the number by 100. For example, it'll convert the number 6 to 600% in the cell.

However, if you only want to add a percentage sign to the number without multiplying the number by 100, such as to convert 6 to 6% in cell, how would you get it done? This's article will guide you to add only the percentage sign for both single and multiple general numbers in cells quickly.
