Moving between cells

When I use the keyboard arrows to move between cells - the focus doesn’t change between the cells but stays on the same one and just moves the whole sheet down. Why?

After restarting my computer the cursor stopped responding to the mouse.

You're probably running Windows, and that's a common problem, and usually very easy to fix. If you are using a wireless mouse, remove the USB receiver, wait 10 - 20 seconds and put it back in. If that doesn't work, remove USB rec. , shut off mouse and go through a restart. Try restarting with them removed, if it doesn't work, try restart with them in and turned on. You can use keyboard commands to do this next part If that doesn't work, go into the Control Panel, system, device manager, mouse, right click ( lined square to right of space bar ) then properties, reset to default - The windows symbol beside space bar is the start menu, the arrows control scrolling through options or moving the page, TAB changes what the computer is focused on, ALT and F4 closes whatever program you're focused on - pressing it twice will cause a restart. And if your comp ever jams up, press CTRL, ALT and DELETE at the same time, opens task manager and unjams,,, usually. Hope some of that helped. Grimm

Automaticaaly arrow/ cursor is moving to end , moving down automatically

Mostly caused by a stuck key on the keyboard. Just turn off the system, and tap on all the keys gently to release them - should take care of the issue. You should also check how this works in safe-mode to ensure it's not due a software that was recently installed.

Moving focus

Check the focus selector lock, located just below the multiselector (the cursor pad with the arrows). Make sure it's not in the "L" position, which locks the focus area.

How do I set the resolution on my Canon SD850?

The instructions for changing the resolution are on page 30 of the manual.
If the pictures are fuzzy, increasing the resolution won't help. The most likely causes of fuzzy pictures are as follows
1) Focus. Check to make sure the focus is on the subject. If something else in the picture is sharp while others are not, then the camera may have focused on the wrong subject.
2) Subject motion. If moving objects are fuzzier than stationary objects then you need to use a faster shutter speed (or flash).
3) Camera motion. Just because the camera is on a tripod doesn't mean it doesn't move. One philosophy says that if a tripod is light enough to be carried then it's not sturdy enough. For a compact camera like the SD850 that likely isn't the problem. However, you can still shake the camera when you press the shutter release button. Try setting the self-timer. This allows time for the vibrations to die down before snapping the picture.
In your particular case, I think we can assume that the subject isn't moving, so #2 doesn't apply. To assure proper focus, make sure the painting is flat and perpendicular to the lens axis. If the painting is tilted relative to the camera, then different parts of it will be at different distances and the camera won't be able to keep all of it in focus.
Also, make sure the front of the lens is clean.
