How to Make the Arrow Keys Work in Excel

Have you ever encountered the frustrating issue of your arrow keys not working in Excel? You press the down arrow, but instead of the cell changing, the whole sheet moves. This issue is caused by the scroll lock being turned on, but don’t worry, it’s an easy fix!

First, you can try turning off the scroll lock if you can find it available on your keyboard. Simply hold down the Shift key and click on the scroll lock. However, if you can’t find the scroll lock on your keyboard, there is still another way to solve this issue.

You can use the on-screen keyboard. To access it, click on the Start menu and then click on Settings. From there, search for the “Ease of Access” keyboard settings and click on it. You’ll see an option for the on-screen keyboard. Turn it on, and you’ll see a keyboard appear on your screen.

Now, click on the scroll lock button on the on-screen keyboard, and you’re done! You can now go back to your Excel sheet and use the arrow keys as normal.
