Default how do i make values increase by 1 while going down a cell

Enter the first in A1 (23 for example) and the second (24) in A2
Select A1 and A2 and pull the fill-handle (solid square in lower right of
selected cell) down the column

Or enter the first number; select the range to fill; use Edit | Fill -
Series
best wishes
