Arrow Keys working as Scroll Keys in Excel

When I log into Microsoft Excel, my Arrow Keys are working as Scroll Keys. I noticed at the button of the spreadsheet there is box that has SCRL in it. I think that this might be the problem, but I am unable to determine how to turn this off.

When I type something, I do have the ability to arrow backwards or forward to insert a word or something. I have to press the delete button or the back space button or use. my mouse. I noticed that there are three buttons above my key pad on the keyboad: The first one is for turning the numbers on and off; the second one is for turn the caps on and off; but I am unable to determine what the third button is for. I noticed that the blue light is on, but I can not figure out how to turn it off. Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

The key that activates thenumeric pad arrow keys it is called "num lock", and it is located on top of the numeric keypad.

Laptops may have additional function buttons to activate the arrow keys.

The issue is that Scroll lock is turned on, turn this off and your issue will be resolved. As far as how to do it varies on the keyboard/laptop you have, MOST keyboards have a key labeled Scroll Lock or SCR or something of the like, laptops can be trickier some have a key just for that button others require you to hold down the function ket (fn) and the press the key that is labeled as scroll lock.

Arrow keys depressed and columns move, not cursor (Excel 10)


It sounds like you have the "Scroll Lock" turned on, simply press the scroll lock key to remove the scroll lock.

Release the scroll key


    • 1 Open and power on the laptop.
    • 2 Wait for the laptop to fully boot.
    • 3 Locate the "Scroll" button at the top-left of the keyboard. It is under the volume panel and between the "F12" and "Pause" keys.
    • 4 Press the "Scroll" button.
    • 5 Test it by opening a spreadsheet and using the arrow keys to move around on it. You can open your Microsoft Excel program or create a spreadsheet online by using Google Docs (free online productivity software). The "Scroll Lock" function will keep the current cell selected while the screen moves.
    • 6 Press "Scroll Lock" again to turn it off.

Scroll lock in excel 2007


When SCROLL LOCK is on, "SCRL" appears on the Excel status bar. If you press the arrow keys when SCROLL LOCK is on, you scroll one row up or one row down. Or, you scroll one column to the left or one column to the right. To use the arrow keys to move between cells, you must turn SCROLL LOCK off.
