Arrow keys not working in Excel, it scrolls instead

April 7, 2011 8 comments

Been a while since I posted, but here is a quick easy answer to a problem I’ve seen quite often. When you are working in MS Excel it is quite easy to move between fields using the arrow key. Every once in a while I’ll have a client call and as if I can fix their Excel because the arrow makes “everything move”.

The fix for this is simple: The scroll lock key has been pushed on the keyboard. Hit the scroll lock key again and your arrows will work normally. If that doesn’t fix it I would check to make sure you don’t have a macro that is causing issues.
