avail or avail of

I pressed “CTL + T” to create a data table to avail of the many benefits it offers

This is a made-up sentence in the context of Excel. Does it sound natural? Is it grammatically correct?
Should it be "avail" or "avail of " in my context?

Thanks!

    Neither. Unless you are in Ireland. You avail somebody of something. In this case you "... avail myself of ..."

    There are previous threads about avail. You might like to look at them.
