Select interval (every other) rows or columns in Excel

In Excel, you can manually select interval or every other rows or columns with holding the Ctrl key. But if you have thousands of rows in a worksheet, this method will be very troublesome and time consuming. Excel doesn't support you an option to quickly select interval rows or columns with one click. But Kutools for Excel's Select Interval Rows & Columns utility can quickly select interval rows or columns in Excel.
